I-205 South to Exit 10 (Park Place), which merges onto Hwy 213 South. Turn left onto Washington Street. The cemetery sign is on the right side of the street.
The cemetery is enclosed by a white picket fence and is very small. It's surrounded by an industrial company.
The people buried here are the family of Hiram Aldrich Straight. The earliest listed burial was 1871 and the last in 1955. There may be others earlier without a burial marker.
Straight Pioneer Cemetery is owned by Oregon City OR and maintained by the Oregon City Parks Department.
I walked and transcribed this cemetery on Feb 14, 2004. There were 23 marked graves, but not all were identified.
