  DOUGLAS & DOUGLAS ISLAND CEMETERIES  


DOUGLAS AND DOUGLAS ISLAND

In July of 1994 the City and Borough of Juneau Community Development Department embarked on an ambitious project to survey the historic cemeteries in Douglas, Alaska located within the City and Borough of Juneau. When the project began it was believed there were only three cemeteries in Douglas, the Catholic Cemetery, Eagles Cemetery and Douglas Indian Cemetery. Once research got under way it proved that there are actually ten separate recognized cemeteries in Douglas; the Catholic, Eagles, Douglas Indian, Masons, Odd Fellows, City, Servian, Asian, Native, and Russian Orthodox.

Research of the burial records indicated 514 burial sites within nine of the cemeteries. The field survey found 157 grave markers in these cemeteries. No burial records were available for the Douglas Indian Cemetery but 12 markers were found. Each cemetery was surveyed, inventoried, and researched for historical significance and physical condition. It is believed that the cemeteries are historically significant and retain the integrity to be considered eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places.
