The Pioneer Cemetery is the resting place to some of British Columbians earliest pioneers, located off highway one in historic Yale. This beautiful piece of history is a lush meadow flat overlooking the banks of the Fraser River. Although Pioneer Cemetery is a beautiful resting spot for many settlers, some of the history involving those that rest here is horrid. Locals tell the legends of tragedy and greed, a powerful poison during the gold rush many gold rushers were murdered, and their spirits left to rest along the gold banks of the mighty Fraser. Many say because of some tragic deaths the cemetery is haunted. The Pioneer Cemetery is open to the public, although it is recommended daytime visiting, those who dare can tour the cemetery at night a choice not recommended by locals.
