The Davis Graveyard

The Davis Graveyard, Milwaukie’s own back-yard haunt is a sure win this Halloween season. For ten years, this back yard haunt has grown from idea to reality. Every year, the families add a little something new, and every year more and more people flock to see the display.

The cemetery is open from sunrise to 10 p.m. every day (11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday), but if you want the lights, come at dusk. The full effect runs from dusk to 11 p.m. on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday until ten. What does that mean? It means fog, sound effects, animation, and a splendidly spooky time.

The Davis Graveyard is located at 8703 se 43rd Avenue, Milwaukie, OR, 97222(at the corner of Johnson Creek and 43rd Avenue). The folks at the Davis Graveyard ask that you consider neighbors, trick-or-treaters, and Johnson Creek Blvd. traffic when you come to visit the display.

The Davis Graveyard gets a high five for Halloween spirit!

Am soooo tired of this yearly display

Jan Gordon(Oviatt) 6 years ago

I viewed this display; and I was amazed at the whole works that they presented to the public. This was truly

good work; and the ghostly animation was superior. It is

great and fun to see people get in the mood and offer something for the public finally. I am so tired of those

who cannot find any enjoyment in the Holidays. Good work

to the Davis family. Now I know what to do with my Jaguar

that is 'cursed'. I think I will build a graveyard around it and finally put it to rest. (just some enlightment here)
