A lot of the Valley's old family names can be found in this historic cemetery. Beautifully kept grounds combined with statuesque headstones make this an interesting place to wander through.

My husband's grandparents were long-time dairy farmers....and entire family was buried in the local cemetery, built on a steep hill. We enjoyed seeing it and paying our respects.

It is steep so have good shoes. You get a good idea of the demographics of the people who made up the early Ferndale. Great views. Lots of old headstones. Great grounds for a peaceful historical walk.

Definitely worth checking out simply due to the unique location (on a very steep hillside). Drive through town and take a left toward the end. Easy to find.

This is an unusual cemetery dating back to pioneer days. It is located on a tall hill overlooking the beautiful Victorian era town of Ferndale. From the top you can see all the way to the ocean.

A nice walk up to the top of the hill. The reward: you can see all the way to the ocean! Lots of history there too.

A small drizzle through a large part of Ferndale history. Hilly, however looking at its beauty from flat land is worth the stop.

We stumbled on the Ferndale cemetery while in town on a rainy day. This is such a cool place with tons of history. If you like old cemeteries, you need to stop here.
