The Knoll

Newton Cemetery & Arboretum is pleased to announce the creation of the newest section in the cemetery, The Knoll.

The Knoll will add 4+ acres to established grounds, and expand the environmental benefits of the arboretum. A variety of burial options will be offered in a beautifully designed area. A rolling landscape will be planted with a diverse selection of hundreds of new trees and thousands of new shrubs and plants. The Knoll, with the highest point in the cemetery, will overlook older as well as newer sections of the cemetery that will highlight flowing water features, a lagoon, natural ledge outcroppings, stone walls, and walking paths.  

The public is welcome to explore and enjoy The Knoll when it opens in 2024.  Appointments for inquiries regarding interment options can be made with the Newton Cemetery office.
