On the northern side of Seattle’s Queen Anne Hill, Mount Pleasant Cemetery is a stark reminder of a string of major events throughout Washington’s history. The cemetery is the resting place for 136 victims of a ship caught in turbulent waters northwest of Seattle, 18 victims of a train struck by lightning and stranded in a blizzard, and five victims of the Everett Massacre, an armed labor confrontation. Radical labor union activist and songwriter Joe Hill is one of its best-known residents. The grounds are also home to Seattle’s first Jewish cemetery, established in 1890 by Congregation Ohaveth Sholem.
