I've never seen a cemetery like this one! It's arranged into several sections by race/ethnic group, fraternal organization, etc. Interesting variety of styles of monuments and tombstones. Nice to walk through and get a sense of some of the local history including immigration.

Very interesting history on how the cemetery is organized, segregated by race, and fraternal organization. Many of the organizations there were started by groups pooling their money to bury mine accident victims and/or to send the family back home. Due to the hilly area, they are stair-stepped and some families were wealthy enough to mark their plots with wooden or... More

It's very different than other cemeteries and fascinating. Go and give a bit of cash to the restoration effort. Find Yvonne and let her simple monument represent the century since the woman who died at the age of 97 was buried in the Mt Olivet section. See the orthodox crosses and the little lambs and mothers and fathers and multiple... More

This place is fascinating. Their are separate sections devoted to various ethnic groups and some of the area date back into the 1800's. Come and visit.

The Rosyln cemetery is divided into more than 20 different areas reflecting the diverse backgrounds of the miners and others who traveled to and lived in Roslyn. There are areas for veterans, of course, adjoining areas for black miners, Slovaks, Poles, and so on. The cemetery is at the base of a hollow, running up the hillsides on either side... More

It is a wonderful and very old Cemetery. These sacred grounds were revered by early families as a place of honor. It is 19 acres of woods and hill with all these separate areas for Veterans, Druids, African American, Polish, Serbian, Croatian, it goes on and on.

Fascinating that such a small place can have such a big cemetery. Well worth going to see. Many the nationality represented and reflects the town's mining heritage.

Roslyn, Washington, is a former coal mining town. Lots of men died in the mines so the cemetery is a large one for such a small place. The well-kept cemetery houses graves for people of varying nationalities and social organizations. it is a time capsule for the town.

This is a very large cemetery for the size of the town. There is a lot of history here and if one wants to discover the kind of people that worked in a coal mining town this is a great place to start. The cemetery is divided into several sections depending upon the ethnicity of the various factions in the... More

The museum docent pointed us here and we drove to the road end, then up hill and round on dirt track to city cemetery where you could park overlooking the cemetery plots. Lots of nationalities and a different fraternal "lodges: here all separated and fenced. I guess you wanted to sleep with your friends in the afterlife. Tells a real... More
