Pleasant Creek CemeteryPrint Page Print this page

Cairn marks the site of the Pleasant Creek Cemetery with a stone to baby J. James Been who died in 1858.

This was the site of the unofficial cemetery for the young goldrush settlement (known as the One Tree Hill cemetery). About 50 graves are believed to be here, though only one headstone has been found (dated 1858). The headstone was incorporated into a memorial. The cemetery was closed in 1858.
