This cemetery is set in a beautiful environment filled with trees, whining roads and easy going hills. This cemetery is very old and has many historical people within its grounds- even the well know Uncle Sam!

This historic cemetery is quite large and is very interesting. Many Troy residents are buried here who are also known on a national level. The Earl Chapel has gorgeous stain glass windows.

Great place to visit for the history of the area, family is buried here but I have never thought of it like a cemetery more of a walk trough history.

A large and historic cemetery perfect for a history buff or hikers. Many of the monuments have beautiful stonework and there are amazing views of the city of Troy and across the river.
