Blue Ridge Mountain views and Monticello
Our Charlottesville cemetery is known for its beautiful views that overlook the city and also the Blue Ridge Mountains. Monticello Memory Gardens borders the historical location of Monticello, which is the home of Thomas Jefferson, his gravesite and the Thomas Jefferson Foundation property.
Variety of cemetery options
The cemetery provides a wide variety of choices for you and your family. We have traditional ground burials (with both flush and upright monuments), lawn crypts, community mausoleums, private family mausoleum estates and cremation memorializations.
Room for expansion
With many undeveloped acres designated for future expansion, Monticello Memory Gardens will be able to continue to serve new generations of Charlottesville families for years and years to come.
Monticello Memory Gardens was founded in 1930. We have been proud to be the Charlottesville cemetery that generations of families have chosen because of our care and attention to detail.
The Thomas Jefferson connection
Our grounds are located less than 1 mile from Monticello, the home of our 3rd president, Thomas Jefferson. Our gardens border the Thomas Jefferson Foundation property. Monticello was the pet project and elaborate home of Thomas Jefferson. In fact, the president loved Monticello so much that he is buried there.
80 years and counting
For more than 8 decades, our enchanting memorial park has provided Charlottesville-area families with many burial and cremation memorialization options. We understand that families may want additional space for the next generations to come. Monticello Memory Gardens owns many acres of undeveloped land to help ensure that a family's heritage can be continued here for many years into the future.
