Visitation & Decorations

VisitationThis is Holy Ground...God's Acres

Through the years, the burial places of those awaiting the resurrection have been viewed as "sacred sleeping places." A sense of reverence is always expected while visiting these sacred grounds.

Every decent human act which enhances the human body and spirit, such as walking or riding a bicycle, can be considered wholesome and holy. Thus, we see no contradiction in using the cemetery for these and other similar activities. We do, however, respectfully ask those using these sacred grounds to extend the following courtesies.

  • Assume the good intent of everyone on our grounds and presume their respect of the sacredness of these premises
  • Walkers, runners, riders and the like should remain on the roadways, not move in among the graves
  • Pets must be kept on a leash and remain on the roadways. Cleaning up after one's pet is essential

The cemetery is committed to public safety and security. The police, as well as private security companies, have access to our grounds and modern security practices are employed for our buildings.

Reverential attitudes and respectful actions are requested at all times.
Please wait while we gather your results.
