The cemetery has been re-opened for public access.
Due to freezing rain and inclement weather Metro has closed Lone Fir cemetery so we unfortunately will not be conducting our Art & Epitaph tour tomorrow. We apologize for the inconvenience but we do understand the importance of safety to both you and the cemetery itself. Thank you for your understanding.
We have made the decision to cancel our monthly Art & Epitaph tour on Saturday January 7th due to impending inclement weather. Safety is always a priority and the weather forecast looks icy and possibly snowy. Thanks for your understanding!
Many thanks to Metro and all the amazing volunteers for putting on another great event!
BIOGRAPHY: The famous African-American suffragist from Oregon, Hattie Redmond, was born Harriet Crawford in 1862, or 1863. Her parents were slaves, Reuben Crawford, her father, was a rope-maker and later a ships’ caulker, and her mother was Vina Blue. Hattie, being the oldest of eight children, helped her mother in caring for her siblings, as the family made frequent moves from the East Coast, then to St. Louis, San Francisco, and finally settled down in Portland, Oregon around 1880.
Mrs. Redmond’s records of her efforts to win womens’ right to vote in Oregon were rediscovered in 2012 by the Century of Action committee in Oregon,and highlighted in the special ceremony held at Lone Fir on July 21, 2012, attended by more than two hundred people including Gov. Barbara Roberts.
