Pioneer Cemetery

Explore where it all began, over 150 years ago. The Pioneer Cemetery includes the first settlers of Sumner and the region, including a number of veterans who served in America’s wars going all the way back to the Civil War. While this area no longer has availability for future burials, it is well worth a stroll through history to appreciate the art and memories of memorials from Sumner’s earliest time.
