The Old Cemetery
Nowhere else in Agassiz will you get a better sense of the town’s history than at the Old Cemetery. Located off Limbert Road in Agassiz, the cemetery climbs up the side of one of the local mountains. The steps up, although steep, offer a glimpse into Agassiz’s past. And when you finally reach the top, you can stand next to the grave of the Agassiz family, and look over the community they helped found.
