We are now accepting reservations for our Ash Grove Columbarium.  These niches will hold the cremated remains in an above ground beautiful location 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 two years ago. 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.

(Foundations are in place, the Columbarium will be installed in the middle of June, 2017)

We have some full burial and cremation lots available and are building a columbarium where we lost a very large ash tree to the Emerald Ash Borer. A columbarium is an above ground granite structure with niches which hold the ashes (in an urn) of a loved one.  We are taking pre-orders for the Memorial Ash Grove Columbaria at this time.  Single niches are $1000 or double niches are $2000.  Please email mtwashingtoncemetery@gmail.com for more information or visit our shop to reserve a spot.

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 Mt. Washington Cemetery Association (a volunteer non-profit organization) administers and cares for the cemetery. If you appreciate the natural beauty of the cemetery and would like to contribute time or money, please use our contacts page to let us know how you want to help.

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
