The District of Hope public works crew got a head start on spring by building a new rock garden at the Hope Pioneer Cemetery, on Tuesday, February 1. The garden had been requested by the Christ Church National Historic site heritage committee, who worked over the summer to clean up the historic graveyard on Coquihalla Street. Laying at rest in the aged cemetery are members of some of Hope’s historic families, along with a Potter’s Field, where many transient workers were laid to rest, and the victims of the 1917 Coquihalla Hotel fire.
