About the cemetery

Upper Valley Cemetery

Hood River County
Established 1896
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.
