Situated on land that was originally owned by town-founder George Gibson, Pioneer Cemetery holds many insights into the rich history of the Sunshine Coast. In 1910 Gibson donated land for the construction of Gibsons’ Methodist Church, but he did so with one stipulation: that a cemetery be created for the future internment of his family members. From it’s construction, the Methodist Church served as a community gathering place and place of worship until it’s relocation in the 1960’s.
