The White Plains Rural Cemetery was organized as a rural cemetery corporation on December 16, 1854. We are a non-denominational cemetery and welcome local White Plains families, as well as families from surrounding communities. We have space available for family plots, individual graves, private mausoleum sites, as well as a columbarium for the inurnment of cremains.
Our mission is to maintain, in a park-like atmosphere, a permanent and dignified resting place for the deceased, as well as a place of beauty and contemplation for the living. The Board of Trustees is dedicated to maintaining the Cemetery’s viability for many generations to come.
We are located at one of the Gateways to our City on North Broadway, where you will find names from throughout the City’s history carved in stone. The building that houses the cemetery office, built in 1797 as the first Methodist church in White Plains, as well as the grounds, are included in the State and National Registries of Historic Places. We invite you to visit soon.
