Eureka Cemetery & Mausoleum Association (ECA) was incorporated on January 18, 1889 and is a recognized 501(c)(13) Non-Profit historical cemetery. ECA began with a land donation of the original section of the now 22 acre cemetery.
The association provides the final resting place for thousands of remains of loved ones. The association provides rite of interment in both burial sites and a mausoleum for either casket or urn burials.
The association has two groundskeepers who dig the grave and urn burial sites while maintaining the 22 acre grounds. The staff, manager and secretary, meet with families to assist in selecting a grave site, mausoleum crypt or niche, or the scattering flower garden area. Additionally, staff assists in the selection and ordering of grave markers (headstones) while coordinating the burial and related ceremonies. Our staff also coordinates annual events and ceremonies honoring our fallen on days such as Memorial Day, Veteran’s Day and like National days of remembrance.
Staff also assists all those attempting to locate family members and friends resting within our cemetery, in person, by email, or via phone requests for information.
Our cemetery relies on the purchase of rights of interment and the sale of concrete liners, vaults, markers, and perm-a-vases for the income necessary to fund its very existence along with some contributions from the public. The State of Oregon, County of Lincoln, and City of Newport waive what would be a very substantial property tax which cuts down on the yearly expenditures which helps the cemetery to exist and remain available for the general public.
