Overview

Pioneer Cemetery is the resting place for some of Auburn's earliest residents, primarily from the Japanese American community, and their descendants. Japanese immigrants (Issei) and their American born children (Nisei) became the primary users and stewards of the cemetery. Today burials at Pioneer Cemetery are rare, as space is limited to descendants of those already buried on site.
