700 SW Broadway St
Albany, OR 97321
You’re invited to visit the Albany Masonic Cemetery over Memorial Day weekend for a self-guided walking tour of notables buried at 700 Broadway St., SW. Fifty yellow placards throughout the five acres recount the lives of a cross-section of Albany’s citizens including Samuel Althouse (1825-1886), one of Albany’s earliest settlers and Carol (Dirrett) Davis (1919-2014), director of the American Red Cross during the 1964 floods and the Vietnam War.
Volunteers have been restoring markers and grounds for seven years through grants from the Oregon Historic Cemeteries Grant and local donors. The cemetery is considered “significant” in the inventory of Oregon historic properties and is looked after by the Albany St. Johns Lodge #17 AF & AM.
