Sunnyside Cemetery, a pioneer burying ground, is located on central Whidbey Island, near Coupeville, Washington. Its establishment began with the first burial, Winfield Ebey in 1865.

Many people visit our cemetery to mourn or simply feel closer to their loved ones, but others come for the peaceful solitude, beauty and history. The American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars place flags and have a Memorial Day ceremony, and the Island County Historical Society sponsors a number of walking tours during the summer.

Today, the cemetery is well maintained by dedicated caretakers, volunteers and an elected Board of Commissioners. Resolutions are in place to protect the old part of the cemetery to maintain its history and integrity as a pioneer burying ground.
