A monument commemorates the pioneers who were buried in Wangaratta`s first cemetery.

The vacant allotment in Faithful-street where several pioneers of Wangaratta were buried before there was a general cemetery has been fenced, and a monument erected to commemorate their memory. The control of the ground has been vested in the State school committee, and the garden will be laid out and maintained by school children. Nearly £100 has already been spent on improvements.
Age (Melbourne), 7 May 1926.
