Averill Cemetery

Take a virtual tour of Bandon's historic cemetery. The cemetery is actually three cemeteries that are on one continuous piece of land. The three cemeteries are the Pioneer, also called the “Averill” Cemetery; the G.A.R. or Grand Army of the Republic cemetery; and the Holy Trinity Catholic Cemetery. For historical purposes, this tour concentrates on the Pioneer and the G.A.R. sections.

While we do not have the staff to handle research requests, we may be able to have one of our volunteers take a quick look at our records to see if an individual is in our records.
