The Cemetery was founded in 1846 by Charles Evans, a prominent local lawyer and philanthropist who desired to establish a nonsectarian cemetery where the friends and relatives of those departed might linger and meditate. Employing unusual vision, Charles Evans selected and purchased 25 acres of land on a prominent hilltop situated, at that time, a mile outside the City limits.
The Charles Evans Cemetery is non-profit and its lots, crypts and niches are available to all, with a portion of each purchase designated for perpetual care. Lots can be purchased in advance, thus allowing more flexibility in selection. Cremation, Interment services and burial vaults can also be purchased prior to need. Payments which the Cemetery receives in advance for goods and services are placed in trust, thereby guaranteeing the prices. Other trusts are available for additional services desired for a specific lot such as flower placement on a major holiday, continued care of shrubbery or the cleaning of memorials on a periodic basis. Appointments can be made by calling the office at the number above.
This location has proudly served the area with exceptional care for years and will help guide your family through funeral etiquette, customize your tribute, funeral costs, directions to cemeteries, guestbook, online obituary creation, and telling your life story. When you are interested in preplanning your memorial service, you can be sure your legacy will be guarded and that you may have peace of mind.
