Olney Cemetery was declared open on June 10, 1891, sited on a tract of land deeded by Stephen Olney. It was decided that Pioneer Cemetery on the north side of the river had become unsuitable for further use. Many Pioneer Cemetery occupants were moved to Olney Cemetery. The 55-acre cemetery boasts the only tree-canopied street in the city, enticing you to take a quiet stroll and share a glimpse of the surrounding area's history.  There are approximately 17,000 people interred, but with +/- 70,000 graves, there are still many available for purchase.

 A mausoleum constructed in 1918, with a second addition in 1920 and a final addition in 1964, graces the cemetery grounds right inside the ornate brick and iron entranceway. In 2006, the Pendleton City Council dedicated a portion of land east of the mausoleum for Treehaven Pet Cemetery. This is the first pet cemetery in Eastern Oregon.
