Ivy Hill Cemetery


Ivy Hill Cemetery welcomes visitors during daylight hours. We encourage the gentle use of our cemetery for light recreation, education, and enjoyment of our natural treasures. We would like to remind visitors that this is still a working cemetery and we require respect to those who are here for burial or mourning purposes. We also need to remind visitors that although stones look substantial and can be very heavy, some are extremely delicate and can be easily toppled over. Please be careful.

Rules for Visitors

  1. Please keep children and pets on designated paths. Dogs must be on leash at all times, and owners must clean up after their dogs.
  2. Supervise children and pets at all times.
  3. If you need to cross the grass be careful not to lean on, or trip over stones. Watch for animal holes as well.
  4. Light recreation, such as walking or jogging, is permitted, but a cemetery is not a park. Please give a wide berth to funerals or grieving visitors.
  5. You are welcome to picnic on the grounds, but please clean up thoroughly afterward.
