DONATE NOW

The world faces unprecedented challenges. As the death care industry paradigm shifts from higher burial revenues to lower revenue from cremations, many historic cemeteries find themselves struggling financially. Easton Cemetery is no different.

 

The cemetery is facing the largest challenge of its 175-year existence.

We are determined to bring the Historic Easton Cemetery back to life, just as it was when it first opened its gates in 1849. No matter the size of your donation, all contributions will advance our efforts to protect the past by investing in the future of the Historic Easton Cemetery.

Keep Our Gates Open

We have a plan for the future, but we need your help NOW to ensure that we have the time to put it in place for the next 175 years and beyond.

Road Constuction

Road Repaving

Cars were allowed in Easton Cemetery in 1913 and it soon became apparent that the dirt roads were no longer adequate. Now the cemetery is faced with the daunting problem of resurfacing 9 miles of road within the grounds.

Protect Our Green Space

With 86 acres of greenery, this is the largest public green space in Easton. And keeping the 9 miles of roads maintained as well as grass mowed and snow and debris cleaned is an expensive endeavor for a very learn grounds crew.

Preserve History

With over 42,000 buried and 175 years of historical figures, war heroes, famous artists, and notable and loved Easton residents, Historic Easton Cemetery tells the history of Easton by remembering the deceased.

Monument Restoration

Our mausoleum was built in 1919 and all of the burial niches within it were quickly sold. But after 100 years, this beautiful structure is badly in need of repair.  Other monuments, such as a the George Taylor monument in front of the chapel, are also in need of restoration.
