Directions
Note- there is also the Terrace Municipal Cemetery,
which is located just north of the North-West Community College
both cemeteries are only a few blocks apart.
both are on Kalum Lake Rd, now known as the Nisga'a Highway.
Pioneer Cemetery is on left, top of hill from Highway 16
Municipal Cemetery is on the right
after McConnell Ave.


EXT Links
Note- NOT my sites!

Yvonne Moen, Local Terrace Historian, gave a tour of the cemetery May 9, 2014.
Yvonne, and Friends of the Cemetery (see below), have collected stories of these pioneers.
They have printed a handout on the cemetery, and are asking for more information.

My hat goes off to Yvonne for her research in local history.
She deserves all the credit she gets.
