Elmwood is a historic cemetery with available lots that provides a beautiful final resting place to families as it shares its history, art and nature with the community; this is our mission statement. Elmwood was established as part of the Rural Cemetery Movement which swept the nation in the early to mid 1800s. It is a classic example of a garden cemetery with its park-like setting, sweeping vistas, shady knolls, large stands of ancient trees, and magnificent monuments.
Our professional Cemetery Services staff has a combined 30 years of service to Elmwood, ensuring that families receive the compassionate, professional service that is needed at such a critical and emotional time.
Elmwood Cemetery allows Green Burials. Green burials are an environmentally-conscious approach to interment. These burials typically involve a shroud or biodegradable casket without a burial vault or liner, and alternative use of embalming fluids.
If you are interested in preplanning your funeral service, you can be sure your legacy will be covered and that you can have peace of mind. This location has proudly served the local community with exceptional care for years and will help guide your family through memorial service etiquette, personalize your tribute, funeral costs, directions to cemeteries, guestbook, online obituary creation, and telling your life story.
