Gooderham Pioneer Cemetery Doors Open Highlands East

Gooderham Pioneer Cemetery

The Gooderham Pioneer Cemetery contains graves of some of the first settlers in the community, in the area once known as Canada West. The earliest recorded burial is that of George Ridout, in 1880. Although the cemetery was closed to further burials in 1905, as a gesture of respect, Alice (Dixon) Hunter was allowed to be buried there in 1929.
