Hillsboro Pioneer Cemetery
Hillsboro, Washington County, Oregon

Lat: 45° 31' 14N, Lon: 123° 00' 15W

The cemetery is situated on the western edge of town. Travel west on Tualatin-Valley Highway (Oregon Hwy. 8) towards Cornelius. As you approach the outskirts of Hillsboro, the highway takes a northerly turn. As you follow the signs for Hwy. 8, you'll eventually head west again. This part of the highway is described as SW Baseline Street. Travel about 1.5 miles west; the first of three driveways will appear on the north side (to your right). There is no sign to the cemetery, across the street is a WinCo grocery store. You will not be able to access the cemetery from an east-bound direction, as the cemetery is at the edge of a one-way traffic grid.

Originally three separate adjoining cemeteries, the complex is now a single entity known as the Hillsboro Pioneer Cemetery. The earliest burials date from the 1850s, including the city's founder and the state's first governor, David Hill. The cemetery appears to be full, though it may be accepting new burials from previously purchased lots. While there is no maintenance shed on the premises, the cemetery has a well-kept appearance. It is probably under the care of the city parks department.
