We love to visit cemeteries and this one was the best ever! Such old tombstones and history! I'd never seen a cemetery laid out like that or graves where families were buried on top of each other. If you enjoy cemeteries, don't miss this one!

We stopped in here to pay our respects. What an amazing, peaceful place steeped in history. We saw a deer briefly as we walked through. If you can hike up to the very top, it offers some amazing views of the surrounding area.

Normally I wouldn't recommend a visit to a cemetery but this one is quite unique! You can actually drive to the top of the hill that the cemetery runs up. Up there you get a great view of the town. Interesting place!

We stopped in this quaint Victoria town and found the cemetery while we drove around the town! It was so unusual that we found ourselves stopping and walking around. It was truly a piece of art and history.

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.
