History of Acacia Memorial Park & Funeral Home

Acacia Memorial Park and Funeral Home has been part of the Seattle community since its dedication by the Greater Seattle Masonic Lodge in 1926; the Acacia tree symbolizes the promise of rebirth in Masonic rites. In 1927 the Lodge decided to leave the cemetery business and sold the park to Fred Burnaby and his family.

The original gardens in the memorial park were designed to form a Celtic Cross when looked at from above. Construction on the original mausoleum at Acacia began in 1928, and the first phase was completed in 1931. Construction on further phases continued through 1972, and today this mausoleum covers 3.5 acres and is illuminated almost entirely by natural light. In addition to the leaded skylights, there are 29 massive works of stained glass throughout the mausoleum. The funeral home building was constructed in 1964 and was operated as a separate entity by Adams and Morrison for 35 years. In 1999 the staffs of the funeral home and cemetery merged. Construction of the Lake View Mausoleum began in 1977, with the first phase being completed in 1979. The sun-dappled, two-story center atrium holds a Japanese garden with a waterfall and reflecting pool.

A complete renovation of the funeral home was completed in 2000. Custom glass doors and windows made by local artists bring abundant light into the building. In 2007, further updates were made which included installation of an audio-visual suite. Today our facilities can be configured in several ways, providing a warm and unique venue to gather and remember.

We are honored to memorialize more than 55,000 daughters, sons, mothers and fathers, including members of many notable Puget Sound families. Time changes many things, but at Acacia Memorial Park and Funeral Home two things remain the same: our care and understanding.
