How Your Donation Helps

  • Landscaping, Maintenance & Future Needs – $200,000

  • Renovation of Chapel – $1,000,000

  • Road Repair & Replacement – $500,000

  • Perpetual Care – $300,000

      Total: $2,000,000

Because so many monuments predate the inception of perpetual care funds the cemetery also has a serious need for regular maintenance.

The Chapel

Architects have determined that the chapel has withstood the years pretty well but does need renovation to become code compliant and usable for today’s funeral requirements and other community uses.

Roadways

The roads were built for horse and carriage and while they may be charming they need widening and replacing.

Trees

A recent inventory disclosed 221 trees on the property, some in need of removal for safety reasons, others for disease while others need general pruning. Any trees removed will need to be replaced with species that are appropriate to a cemetety setting and require little maintenance.
