About the cemetery
Upper Valley Cemetery
Hood River County
ca. 672 burials
Japanese-Americans historically comprised a significant portion of the Hood River County population. Over the years, they thrived in spite of discrimination, culminating in mass deportations to inland relocation centers during World War II. This cemetery reflects their presence with several Japanese-American families buried here, including various members of the Shibahara family.
