Looking for something to do this summer? Roslyn was a late 19th-Century mining town with a striking ethnic diversity, well represented in the town’s 26 cemeteries. These cemeteries have gained historic status, and are a great place to learn about Washington’s fraternal and ethnic histories. Here is the link to the Roslyn Cemeteries Map that list the following Cemeteries: Cacciatori D'Africa Cemetery, Croatian Cemetery #2, Dr. Starcevic Cemetery #1, Druid Cemetery, Eagles Cemetery, Foresters Cemetery, IOOF Cemetery, Lithuanian Cemetery, Masonic Cemetery, Moose Cemetery, Mount Olivet Cemetery, New City Cemetery, New Knights of Pythias Cemetery, Old City Cemetery, Old Knights of Pythias Cemetery, Polish Cemetery, Red Men Lodge Cemetery, Roslyn Memorial Gardens, Santa Barbara #39 Cemetery, Serbian Cemetery, Silvio Pellico Cemetery, Slovak Cemetery, Sokol Cemetery, Veterans Cemetery, and Veterans Cemetery #2 (County Cemetery). These cemeteries can be found in the Cemetery Records Collection. The titles listed include general information about each cemetery, their geo-location, how many people were indexed, when and how the surveys were conducted, and a total of 71 photographs of the Roslyn cemeteries.
