Evergreen Cemetery


Evergreen Cemetery is a city-owned and operated cemetery consisting of 79 acres with an additional 25 acres a few blocks west of its current site on Michigan Avenue. Admittance hours are dawn to dusk. Burials are performed year-round, although additional fees may apply during winter.

Spaces Available

The cemetery has over 3,000 spaces still available for purchase on its current site, or several decades worth of burials. Evergreen Cemetery provides services for traditional and cremation in-ground burials, as well as columbarium niches for cremations.

All lots and niches include perpetual care, which consists of services such as grass mowing / trimming, watering flowers, and general grounds maintenance, which is necessary to keep our cemetery known as one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the state.

At this time, there is no schedule in place as to when spaces may be sold in the new cemetery property, Evergreen West.
