Very well maintained cemetery and gardens. A final resting place for quite a few of my immediate family. I don't visit the area too often anymore, but always beautiful when I do visit.

Friend recently died in Maine and the family decided to bring the body back to Dayton to be buried in the family plot. The services were held to the chapel with a small gathering of family and friends. One of the best funerals I’ve attended.

I have many family members interned in this beautiful cemetery. I find the grounds peaceful and calming at times because of the lovely settings. From some locations in the cemetery, you can look out and see over the city of Dayton, Ohio.

Recently went to view my Brothers grave and was struck by the beauty and peacefulness of the Cemetary. It is well kept and maintained.

my husband is buried here. It is a beautiful peaceful well groomed and manicured lawn from a local company called Laipis who does a great job on keeping the cementary grounds beautiful. This is a beautiful cementary with very old headstones. Nice and peaceful.
