Long Description:
Find A Grave

"This rural cemetery is fenced and has a nice sign above the 2 gates. A gazebo sits on the property and a pavilion is located across the road and next to the “Old New Hope School.” No visible grass on graves makes this an unusual property, but there is some grass along the roadways. A rock retaining wall is another unusual feature and it has nice steps poured so visitors can access the lower level graves. All plots are surrounded by curbing and there is a sign stating that if curbs are not installed within 6 months of purchase the stakes will be removed and the plots returned for sale. The graves are laid out in orderly rows and the graveyard is very clean. There is plenty of room for additional burials. Many varieties and ages of trees, and lush planting of shrubs are present along with nicely graveled roads. Small homemade concrete numbered markers are located throughout the property marking graves."
