Friends of the GAR Cemetery Park

The Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) Cemetery was platted in 1896 in the north Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. Surrounded by a grassy field, maple and oak trees, and hedge fencing – the cemetery is intimate and secluded. The cemetery is maintained by the Seattle Parks Department and the Friends of the Gar Cemetery Park (FGAR).

Efforts to preserve and revitalize the GAR began with a series of Small and Simple grants from the Department of Neighborhoods (DON).
