Arlington Memory Gardens was founded in August of 1951 on what was once 86 acres of farmland. The very first burial took place in the fall of that same year.
By the late 1960s, our cemetery features were under development and the vision of what Arlington Memory Garden could be for our families began to appear. The Fountain, installed in 1971, was the original centerpiece of the cemetery and for years has provided a unique setting for families to reflect and honor the memories of their loved ones. In 2001, we completed our Chapel Mausoleum, immediately adjacent to the Fountain. Considered the new new centerpiece of Arlington Memory Gardens, many families use the Chapel Mausoleum to hold a personalized memorial service, conduct a committal service during bad weather, or reflect in a quiet, comfortable setting.
Over the years, Arlington Memory Gardens has become known for honoring and serving our nation’s veterans. Throughout the cemetery, we have several Veterans’ Gardens of Honor and features dedicated to our servicemen and women. Duster, an M42 A1 tank, was donated in November 1991 and the black granite memorial in front of Duster was donated by The Military Order of the World Wars. There are two additional memorials in the center of our main entrance dedicated to families that lost loved ones in the Murrah Federal Building bombing and those tragically lost on September 11th
In 2007, Arlington Memory Garden became a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers.
Today, the cemetery property is only half developed, which leaves plenty of land to serve many families for generations to come. As a Dignity Memorial provider, we offer exclusive benefits, including National Transferability of Prearranged Services, the Bereavement Travel Program, the 24-Hour Compassion Helpline® and access to an acclaimed grief management library.
