About the Cemeteries

The Parks, Recreation, and Grounds Department is the governing body of the City of Jackson’s two cemeteries:
Both established in the 1800s, these cemeteries have long served as the places where loved ones are remembered, honored, and cherished since the City of Jackson’s earliest days. Today, Mount Evergreen and Woodland cemeteries continue to offer acres of peaceful, serene land in which individuals can be laid to their final resting place.

Cemetery Decor Removal: Fall 2022

A reminder for residents who have loved ones at the City's two cemeteries, Mt. Evergreen and Woodland.

You have until Monday, Oct. 24, 2022 to remove summer or fall decorations from grave sites. Following that Monday, they will be removed by cemetery staff. It's important to remove this decor so crews can do fall cleanups and help cemeteries look their best.

Decorations may return to graves following Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2022. The City would also like to remind residents that cemetery rules only permit two items to be displayed at each grave site.


Offering space for traditional burials, cremated remains, and mausoleums, you can choose how you’d like to honor a friend or family member that has passed. We make it easy and affordable to assure wishes are fulfilled. For more information, access the listing of cemetery fees for various services and available options.  Please take a moment to view our Cemetery Rules and Regulations, if you have any questions please call us at 788-4040.
