Going Green seems to be the wave of the future and our Cemetery is prepared for that wave. Actually, it was the way of the past. This it how it was done way back when your great-great grandmother and great-great grandfather passed away. Our cemetery is making it possible for people to return to those earlier traditions. The simplicity of a Natural Burial is in tune with nature and need not be expensive.
The non-natural or traditional burial has been programmed into peoples minds since the early 1900's. Most cemeteries require vaults, and with the vault, came very expensive caskets, embalming and much more. It has become very expensive for families to bury their loved ones. It is getting to be almost cost prohibitive.
Natural Burials are the alternative to expensive traditional burials and the unpleasing thought of cremation.
The Union Cemetery is a historic location that dates back to the mid 1800's. It is in a pristine wooded setting. There are numerous 150 year old red cedar trees and large white and black oak trees throughout and is a peaceful location where family and friends can visit in remembrance of their loved ones.
