Eastern Cemetery is the city's oldest historic site dating 1668, and has over 4,000 marked graves.

There are 95 underground tombs, which were built to house about 30 coffins each. The Dead House, which was constructed in 1871, is located inside the front gate and houses a tomb that was built in 1849, to store bodies over the winter when the ground was too frozen to dig.
