Welcome to The Friends of Evergreen

We recognize that Evergreen Cemetery was designed and built by the City of Portland as a cemetery and park where people could find peace and beauty in nature and where open space and history would be safe from the press of progress.

The Friends of Evergreen seek to preserve, protect and restore the cemetery for past, present and future generations. The Friends intend to carry out this mission through historic research, public education, fund-raising and various preservation projects. Just as we now benefit from this historical and cultural resource created by Portlanders before us, so we hope to pass on to those who inherit our city and our work an historic landscape of enduring beauty.
