About our Cemetery

Surrounding the church is the extensive St. Mary’s Churchyard and Cemetery. Roughly organized in a symmetrical plan with hand-crafted stone walls on all sides, the graves have a variety of modest, yet beautiful headstones. A stroll through the churchyard reveals many exquisitely carved stones with interesting histories.

A virtual arboretum, there are many specimen trees including several kinds of beech trees, maple, oak, chestnut, linden, umbrella pine, Kentucky coffee tree, dogwood, and various evergreens and flowering shrubs. Deer and wild turkeys have been seen at times, as well as a number of bird varieties. It is a beautiful place for a quiet peaceful visit.
