Description

The Linkville Pioneer Cemetery is locally significant under Criterion A for Community Planning and Development and for Social History, with a period of significance of 1885 to 1949. The 1931 redesign of the cemetery represents the concerns of the Klamath Falls citizenry with improving their image. The city of Klamath Falls aspired to create order from what was initially organic development. The cemetery was part of this vision, because it suffered from a lack of fencing and informal burial techniques. The new design, which was much more formal, reflects a time when the city became concerned with planning and design, as well as civic amenities. Representing the social history of the range war conflicts, this cemetery has multiple graves that relate to the disputes that defined the culture of feuds over land and animals for the ranchers. This group of grave markers within the cemetery is a vivid, graphic reminder of these events. The cemetery also portrays the social history of racism associated with events surrounding World War II. It contains markers from the Tule Lake Segregation Center, observing the incarceration of Japanese-American citizens during World War II, as well as a marker from an African-American veteran whose burial caused controversy and reform.
