History of George Washington Cemetery
In 1929, on the site of a former large dairy farm, Washington Memorial Park was established as the local cemetery. Then in 1949, ownership changed and the cemetery was renamed George Washington Memorial Cemetery. A few years later, Mount Lebanon Cemetery was established to service the growing Jewish community in our area.

Over the years, other sections of George Washington Cemetery were developed to provide services for many faiths, beliefs and cultures, including the unique burial arrangements and services for our Muslim and Asian families.

In 1997, we became part of the Dignity Memorial® network of more than 1,600 funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers, which enables us to offer several additional benefits to the families we service.

Our cemeteries were established with a commitment to a high standard of service, and throughout our history, we have continued to lead and innovate while maintaining those high standards of service. Throughout the years, George Washington Memorial Cemetery has maintained its park-like setting, which includes several ponds and varied wildlife.

Everyone at George Washington and Mount Lebanon Cemeteries is proud to uphold this heritage and commitment to our community.
