Regulations

  • No lot or grave in the Cemetery shall be used for any other purpose than a place of burial for the human dead.
  • All visitors are requested to keep on the walks and are strictly forbidden from gathering any flower, either wild or cultivated, or breaking any tree, shrub or plant.
  • All persons are forbidden from discharging firearms on Cemetery grounds, except in the case of military funerals or Memorial Day exercises.
  • All persons are prohibited from writing on, defacing or injuring any monument, fence or other structure in or belonging to the Cemetery. Offenses of this kind will be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
  • Dogs are not permitted within the Cemetery grounds, except in vehicles.
  • The speed limit for automobiles in the Cemetery shall not exceed 15 mile per hour.
  • The gates are opened at 7:30 A.M. daily. The gates are closed at dark from May 1 through October 31, and from November 1 through April 30, the gates are closed at 5:00 P.M.
  • The owners of lots have the right to cultivate trees, shrubs and plants in their lots subject to the approval and under the supervision of the Superintendent. If any tree or shrub situated in any lot shall by reason of its roots or branches or otherwise become detrimental, dangerous or inconvenient to the adjacent lots, walks or avenues, the Trustees have the right to enter said lot and remove the said trees and shrubs or such part thereof as they shall determine to be detrimental, unsightly, or inconvenient.
  • In no case shall trees or shrubs be placed on the corners of the lots for the purpose of designating property lines.
  • Stone curbings, iron fences, plant hedges or enclosures of any sort around lots or graves are prohibited.
  • Grave digging and grading of lots, or any work of that kind, must be done by the Association and paid for by the lot owner at charges and terms submitted by the Superintendent.
  • No monument head marker, steps or posts will be permitted to be erected without a foundation. Monuments and headstones must have a concrete foundation.
  • Persons erecting monuments or making any improvements on lots must remove all obstructions and leave the ground in good condition, or it will be done by the Superintendent at the expense of the person doing the work.
  • The building of mausoleums under proper conditions is permitted and encouraged. The Board of Trustees requires that a complete design with working plans and specifications be submitted for its approval before permission will be granted for such structures.
  • In the erection of private mausoleums, a sufficient sum of money must be deposited with the Board of Trustees for the permanent care and maintenance of the same. In later years, the ravages of time prey severely upon mausoleums, and it is necessary that provisions should be made at the beginning for keeping them in perpetual repair.
  • The Trustees will not permit the erection of any structure on any lot that would interfere with the general good effect of the grounds or obstruct the view, or cause annoyance to adjoining lot owners.
  • FOR MAUSOLEUM CRYPTS AND NICHES, cemetery policy requires that owners observe good taste in floral arrangements. Past experience has shown that affixing flowers, pictures or other items by tape or other means has a tendency to damage granite or marble surfaces. Therefore it is suggested that owners use the authorized crypt and niche vases available for sale in the Cemetery office.
