Anchorage Memorial Park Cemetery

Local nameAnchorage Memorial Park Cemetery
LocationAnchorage, Alaska, United States

The Anchorage Memorial Park, also known as Anchorage Cemetery, is a 22-acre cemetery located in Anchorage, Alaska, USA. Covering nine city blocks, the cemetery separates the city's downtown and Fairview neighborhoods.

The cemetery was established by President Woodrow Wilson in 1915 as part of the Anchorage townsite, one of a number of land reserves set aside for public facilities for the new town. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1993, recognizing its status as Anchorage's oldest cemetery.From approximately 1954 to 1986, a public housing complex called Willow Park occupied the half-blocks of the cemetery site adjacent to Ninth Avenue and Fairbanks Street. The buildings were razed to allow for expansion of the cemetery. All that remains is the complex's maintenance building, taken over for the same purpose by the cemetery.
