Ben Franklin said this about cemeteries:
Show me your burial grounds and I’ll show you a measure of the civility of a community.

We are now accepting reservations for our Ash Grove Columbarium. These niches hold the cremated remains in an above ground beautiful location overlooking the cemetery and are available in single or dual niches, for $1000 per urn.
The site is where a huge 175 year old Ash Tree was removed in 2015. This tree saw the growth and lives of all Mt. Washington residents since 1840, when it sprouted. We felt the tree should be memorialized in this manner. Contact us at 513-484-9729 or click here for ordering information.
* Although the cemetery was not founded til the 1860’s, many burials were moved here from other cemeteries.

On Sunday, May 1, 2011, Mt. Washington Cemetery inaugurated and dedicated its new Cenotaph Garden with a ceremony from the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War and Post 484, American Legion. Present were descendants of Isaac Hurley, whose grave is unmarked and in an unknown location within the cemetery.
Here is a link to a video of the program.

The Samuel Hannaford Designed Mortuary Building was renovated to replace the old wooden floor (which was in danger of collapsing into the basement) with a concrete floor. These expenses amount to around $7,000. Click Picture to see pictures of Maintenance Building Basement Renovation Work
