Chicken Ridge Cemetery

Juneau's first burying ground was on Chicken Ridge in the vicinity of Main Street. Nearly 100 graves occupied that part of the ridge in 1887 when it was staked as a mining claim. Between 1889 and 1902 all except 39 of the graves were moved from Chicken Ridge and the last of the old graves were moved to the new Evergreen cemetery about 1915.
