Long Description:
Beechwood features 160 acres of beautifully landscaped floral gardens and century-old maples and evergreens. Beechwood is known for its Hosta gardens, which contain more than 300 kinds of the flower. The elaborate botanical gardens were designed by on-site staffs, which are also on hand to lead tours and answer questions.

Beechwood Cemetery was established in 1873 on a 160 acre tract of land on the outskirts of Ottawa, part of the original McPhail farm (100 acres) and the MacKay / Keefer estates. It became a prime example of the type of rural cemetery that emerged in the United States and Canada in the 19th century characterized by winding roads, picturesque vistas, wooded groves, unique landscaping as well as monuments and markers of considerable architectural and historical interest.

The cemetery gates are open from sunrise to sundown.
