The New Cathedral Cemetery is comprised of 125 acres of monuments spanning from the 1770’s to current times. It is looked after by a dedicated staff, some of whom have been here since the 1970’s. Our Historian has worked at the cemetery for thirty-eight years and still volunteers to come and help us with the old records.
The cemetery is the final resting place of more Hall of Fame baseball players than any other cemetery in the country. We have many other well-known sports figures, politicians, Civil War heroes, and famous personalities. We have some people who helped shape our nation and some who helped shape our town. And then there is Mother Mary Lange, who simply helped make the world better.
