George Wright Warren Memorial in Pioneer Cemetery

Grave Market of George Wright Warren in Pioneer Cemeter, Astoria, Oregon June 10, 2010

This moody photo could have been taken almost any day in June, except that there may be a few more leaves on the trees today than there were on June 10th. This is Pioneer Cemetery at the top of the Astoria hill, and the marker is for the Warren Family. George Wright Warren was one of those early business tycoons who founded banks and other industries. He lived in Knappa, Astoria, and Warrenton, where he built dikes to create valuable farmland out of his property. I believe it's this marker that stands tall in the sunset in this post.

Very moody indeed. I wonder if we will ever see blue skies again???


I think it is the same monument in the other picture. It has the same lines.
