Welcome

Thank you for taking the time to visit the East View Cemetery Association's website. Our desire is that this website will be a useful tool in keeping association members, the community and other interested parties updated and informed as to the current events and progress of the East View Cemetery.

The history of East View Cemetery dates back to 1883.

While many cemeteries fall victim to neglect and criminal activity, the East View Cemetery Association recognizes the importance of preventing this from happening by seeking help from its association members and community volunteers.

In an effort to help in the revitalization of the East Lake area, we hope that you'll visit the East View Cemetery website often to keep updated on events. As we always are in need of volunteers, any help we receive financially or in the giving of your time or talent is greatly appreciated. Our desire is that East View Cemetery will be restored and maintained in such a way that it shows dignity and respect to not only those who have passed on, but can be a valuable asset to the community in which it surrounds. East View Cemetery is not just "a cemetery", it is history that deserves to be preserved.

East View Cemetery plays a vital and important role in the history and beautification of the East Lake community. Its continual maintenance and revitalization is a labor of love. Once again, thank you and enjoy your visit.

Volunteers are always needed and appreciated!

Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood and bone
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so
I wonder if you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you
