Mount Pleasant Cemetery sits on one of the highest land points in Edmonton.
Originally a look-out for indigenous people, this hill-top graveyard commands a view of both the south-side and downtown.
Burials at the cemetery began well before the 20th century making Mount Pleasant a truly historical cemetery. Many prominent members of the community are interred here and their markers help tell the story of Strathcona’s roots and reflect the turn of the century boom town.
