Founded in 1843 by Sam Wollaston, who sought to build one of Delaware’s first non-sectarian cemeteries, we remain one of the state’s oldest, most historic and active burial grounds. All are welcome here regardless of religious affiliation or non-affiliation. Ours is a place of peace. We have many available gravesites amid 25 meticulously maintained acres of majestic grounds featuring an elegant entrance, beautiful views and elevation changes; and gently sweeping side roads named for trees and historic Americans.
