Like many organizations, COVID caused us to pause our public tours and we hope to resume some soon. Groups that wish to conduct their own tours must schedule their visit with the Cemetery ahead of time. This will allow us to coordinate with our security staff and with any Cemetery business that may be scheduled at the time of your group visit.
