The Pioneer Cemetery is very small, and it is no longer active. It was the first public burial ground in the city. It has now been turned into a park - there are picnic tables and playground equipment mixed in with the few remaining gravestones. Although most of the old gravestones are broken, many have been placed behind a metal fence to prevent more damage. The city does an excellent job of maintaining the cemetery/park.
