In 2015, the City and Borough of Juneau Community Development Department, Parks and Recreation Department and the Juneau-Douglas City Museum, partnered on the Evergreen Cemetery Mapping project to confirm gravesite locations and consolidate existing burial records into a digital database.

The project included locating and mapping gravesites and transferring the data to a searchable, digital database utilizing Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and the production of a brochure.

The Evergreen Cemetery brochure was developed in connection to the mapping project to offer a sampling of the dynamic history of community members interred in the historic cemetery and their affiliations with our historic structures.

This project was funded in part by the National Park Service, Department of the Interior, and a grant from the State of Alaska Office of History and Archaeology, Department of Natural Resources.
