My husband's family are buried in this cemetery, and it has been a while since we stopped in. I was quite surprised to see large signs along the roadway, and I didn't realize what they were until we stopped at our destination and I began reading them. They appeared to be part of a self-guided tour of the cemetery, featuring early settlers of Cortland, some interesting facts about monuments in general, and various types of artwork to be found thereon. Although we did not take the time to read them all, I enjoyed learning a bit more about the Cortland area.

I stopped by the cemetery a few weeks ago..it was my first time back to it since my Dad passed away 14 yrs. ago and I was a little disappointed with the upkeep of it. I remember visiting loved ones many years ago and it always looked so nice, but this time it was different. It was the week after Memorial day and my Dad was a Vet. But, I didn't see a flag on his grave like a lot of the other Veterans graves. One pleasant surprise was we saw a lot of little animals roaming the area and it did look so peaceful. Due to life issues I wasn't able to get back there sooner, but I do hope to visit again before the snow falls over there and have more time to take care of my parents graves.

My niece had to go to Cortland this weekend for an interview. While driving we passed this cemetery. It's a cemetery and there is not much to really look at.

My friend and i decided to visit here before heading to the 1890's house down the street. The grounds are beautiful, the rolling hills of green grass, the trees here and there... some graves had fresh flowers planted (thankfully fake flowers are prohibited). The monuments and statues are breath taking in their detail. Their are helpful stands with information about the graves dispersed throughout which helps to make the experience more personal as you learn about those buried there. I wish we could've viewed all of the grounds but it started to pour so we had to leave.

Nice example of cemeteries of the past. Many beautiful monuments, and the walking tour is an excellent addition for appreciating the history of the place.
