Who We Are
The Friends of Poulsbo Cemetery is made of individuals who are cemetery deed holders, the families and friends of those who are interred in the Poulsbo Cemetery, current and former members of the Poulsbo City Council, and representatives of civic and community organizations that share our vision for the Poulsbo Cemetery. We meet periodically and communicate monthly via our “Poulsbo Cemetery Monthly Memo.”
Priorities & Projects
What is the purpose of the Poulsbo Municipal Cemetery?
Should the lower undeveloped section of the cemetery be administered to a new plan?
Should only the city taxpayers be expected to underwrite city cemetery costs?
How are we recognizing and honoring veterans interred at the cemetery?
Can the cemetery evolve into an open air historical and heritage park?
For the first 25 years of its existence, the only cemetery for those living near Poulsbo was Fordefjord Lutheran’s cemetery established in 1886, today known as the First Lutheran Church Cemetery. The next closest cemetery was at Port Gamble, but it was a Company cemetery and not available for non-company burials.
