Olney Cemetery & Treehaven Pet Cemetery

With the changing of the weather, Olney Cemetery staff would like to remind families of a few important items. 

As the weather turns colder, our stone company, Memorial Monuments, would like to pass along some important information regarding stone orders, settings, and engravings.  All orders will be processed throughout the winter months, but may not be completed until sometime in the spring of 2018 due to weather issues.  They are unable to give a completion date. However, if there is a break in the weather suitable for setting stones, they will set them; otherwise they will be on the lot waiting for the spring rush. All stones on the lot over the winter are set first before new stones ordered for Memorial Day arrive. If we have a winter and early spring like we did for 2017, there may be delays in setting stones once the weather begins to warm up due to soft, muddy grounds and locations where stones are to be set. 

Custom stone orders are an exception to this as they may take 3-4 months for the stones to arrive from quarries for blasting. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Olney Cemetery covers approximately 50 acres in southwest Pendleton and is listed by the State of Oregon as a historic cemetery. Just inside the main gate is the lovely Memorial Garden, dedicated specifically to the disposition of cremated remains.  

Olney Cemetery was declared open on June 10, 1891, sited on a tract of land deeded by Stephen Olney. It was decided that Pioneer Cemetery on the north side of the river had become unsuitable for further use. Many Pioneer Cemetery occupants were moved to Olney Cemetery.

Olney Abbey Mausoleum, constructed in 1918, with a second addition in 1920 and a final addition in 1964, graces the cemetery grounds right inside the ornate brick and iron entranceway, just past the Memorial Garden.

The cemetery boasts the only tree-canopied street in the city, enticing you to take a quiet stroll and share a glimpse of the surrounding area's history. There are approximately 17,000 people interred here, but with +/- 70,000 graves, there are still many available for purchase.

Olney Cemetery is host to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Avenue of Flags on Memorial Day. The VFW, in cooperation with cemetery staff, presents a program at 11 a.m. honoring our veterans.


Treehaven, opened in December 2006, was Eastern Oregon’s first pet cemetery. The facility is able to accommodate most domestic pets with a variety of burial options from which to choose. Treehaven is located just inside the main gate of the cemetery near a row of tall pines.

Whether you wish a container or memorial stone for your backyard or burial and memorialization here in the pet cemetery, we can assist you through this difficult time. Our cemetery has both above ground (ashes only) and below ground spaces.

Memorialization options in the pet cemetery include statuary, traditional upright and flat headstones, stone markers, and simulated boulders with cremation vessels inside.
