  • This is a peaceful area. Congressional has worked with the community for years & years, extending themselves as more than just a rest home for the beloved departed. I have heard (but not attended 😔) that there are many events for the living; spanning from film viewings to book readings. It is a quiet place for walking & a unique meet up for dog walks. There are many benches for relaxing & a few tables as well. There is lots of local history located at this cemetery. The grounds are simple but mostly well kept.
