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 1st 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.
Music to the ears
In 1992, to commemorate 60 years of heritage, the Tower of Memories and its classic Deagan Chime System were completely renovated. Pews were installed in the chapel to accommodate intimate committal services. Over the years, the chimes were restored to original working condition—to once again be available to ring for cemetery services and special occasions.
Continued growth and expansion
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 cemetery needs of all the surrounding communities.
