Nehalem Valley Historical Society
NEHALEM — Nehalem Valley Historical Society (NVHS) Cemetery Project coordinator Valerie Vines Magee has announced the completion of a project that was three years in the making. As volunteers with NVHS worked to restore and protect family plots in the Nehalem American Legion Cemetery, some of which date back to 1899, a need was identified to protect the site with boundary fencing.
A design to complement the cemetery was created, and a funding partnership was established with the city of Nehalem, the Tillamook County Cultural Coalition (TCCC) and the Oregon Commission on Historic
Cemeteries to complete the cedar split-rail boundary fence.
A new season of weekly volunteer work, sponsored by NVHS, begins May 12, and will continue on Wednesdays throughout the summer and fall. For information, email Valerie Vines Magee at firstname.lastname@example.org
