Project Description & Challenge

Founded in 1889, this cemetery is one of the oldest in the state. Marquis Latimer + Halback, Inc. has developed a master plan to guide the Catholic diocese for the next century of growth. The phased plan outlines sustainable expansion of the remaining property while also developing standards for the appropriate preservation of the existing historic elements and new design elements for eternal permanence.

Solution

Elements of the plan, which ML+H have been designed and are implementing, include a fully restored Bishop’s Mausoleum and Plaza, the Holy Family Columbarium, new entrance gateways, perimeter fencing, cultural internment areas, Stations of the Cross garden stream, and a new welcome center and sales office.
