History of Peninsula Memorial Park

On April 23, 1932, Peninsula Memorial Park became a reality. To mark this momentous occasion, the cornerstone was placed for the cemetery’s Tower of Memories Chapel and Tower Chimes, a first for the Virginia Peninsula. From that date, the Tower of Memories has been a focal point and stability symbol to the surrounding communities. The architecture of the building reflects the rich colonial traditions of the Peninsula area.

To commemorate 60 years of heritage, the Tower of Memories and its classic Deagan Chime System were completely renovated in 1992. Pews were installed in the chapel to accommodate intimate funeral and cremation services and the chimes were restored to original working condition becoming available to ring for cemetery services and special occasions.

Through the foresight of the founders, the cemetery’s original 17 acres has expanded to 100 acres of burial property with mausoleum complexes and accessory buildings for the funeral and cemetery needs of all the surrounding communities.
