Granite Hill Cemetery Entrance

Granite Hill Cemetery is owned and operated by the  Josephine County Parks Department. Granite Hill was established in 1881 on land originally owned by Ben and Almira Dimmick, who are buried in the IOOF Cemetery. It has been the "County Cemetery" since the 1890's and is on the Oregon State registry as a historical cemetery. Granite Hill has burials dating back to the Civil War, WWI, WWII, as well as Spanish American War Veterans.

The cemetery is divided into 4 sections. The "Original" section is the oldest section dated back to the 1880's (estimate). The "First Addition was added around 1920, followed by the "Second" Addition in the late 1950's. The "Third" Addition was added in the early 1970's. We are currently no longer selling plots at this time. Any plot sales would be a third party sale, should a plot owner wish to sell owned grave sites.
