Visiting Zion

Zion Memorial Park Cemetery and Mausoleum is located on South Township Road just before the intersection with Sequoia Parkway. The property covers about 20 acres, 11 of which are developed.  The older section is mostly full and now there are only infrequent burials in remaining family plots. The new section has been added to during the years with growth to the north and east. A mausoleum was dedicated in 1989.

The cemetery is more than 100 years old. It was organized by the Zion Cemetery Association in January of 1897. The first burial was that of Christian Wintermantel, the individual who originally proposed the cemetery on January 19, 1897. The Canby Evangelical United Brethren Church owned the cemetery until it became too labor-intensive to maintain, and the City accepted ownership and maintenance of Zion Memorial Cemetery in 1937. Rules and regulations were adopted on January 10, 1938 and it has remained in City hands since that time. A fire destroyed some of the paperwork and over the years, the City has reconstructed the records.
