Kent IOOF Cemetery – Oregon Ghost Town Tour

Oregon Ghost Town Day Trip 1 – Bonus Part 4

In Spring of 2022, our family took a day trip to visit some historical ghost towns in Central Oregon. We are fascinated by history and wanted to walk the streets of these old towns to see the monuments to the past that are still standing today. Join us as we walk through each town, describe the historical buildings, provide maps for the day trip, and offer some helpful hints for venturing out on this day trip yourself.

The Kent IOOF Cemetery was founded in the late 1800s, and served as the cemetery for the ghost town of Kent, Oregon. It is about 1.6 miles North of Kent and located up on a hill. When you stand in the cemetery it makes you feel like you are truly out in the middle of nowhere in a lovely, quiet expanse.
