Wednesday Nostalgia

I never trek from Spokane to Port Angeles to visit family without a stop at the Port Gamble Cemetery (properly Buena Vista Cemetery). Established in 1856 the folks resting there arrived from many varied and distant shores.

Gustave Englebrecht was born in Germany and lies resting half way around the world here in Port Gamble. His tombstone reads “COX U.S.Navy, Indian Wars, November 23, 1856.”  His must have been one of the first burials here.  So stop by the next time you just skip on through this lovely historic old town.
