Halcumb Cemetery

Halcumb Cemetery on Highway 299. – Ben Miles

ADA Accessibility Notes

A paved loop road circles much of the cemetery. A couple of the picnic tables located near the entrance from Highway 299 are also ADA accessible.

With many graves of children dating from the 1800s, some of which read "Unknown Child," Halcumb Cemetery offers a glimpse into the hard lives of the pioneer families who resided in the foothills of Shasta County.

The location beside the highway near Montgomery Creek reveals the historic nature of the transportation route now known as California Highway 299. The picturesque green grass, rolling hills, and surrounding landscape from Halcumb are quintessential Shasta County foothill terrain.

Several picnic tables are located near the entrance to the cemetery and benches are scattered throughout, making the open space a welcome rest stop for travelers in the Northern Sierra Cascade.
