About the cemetery

Oswego Pioneer Cemetery

Clackamas County
Established 1881
ca. 1,207 burials


This cemetery is located on the donation land claim of Jesse and Nancy Bullock, who buried their son here in 1856. The family mapped five acres in 1881 for community cemetery use and donated the site to the Oswego Iron Company in 1892, which managed the site until 1934. Nearly 100 iron workers are buried here along with many prominent area pioneers and Nobel Prize-winner Linus Pauling.
