St Mary’s Cemetery Minneapolis, Minnesota
St. Mary’s Cemetery began in 1873. It is a historic cemetery with meandering hills, towering trees, majestic monuments and family mausoleums.
St Mary’s of South Minneapolis is a 65-acre property originally began as a parish cemetery by the Church that is now what is known as the Basilica of St. Mary. In the late 1880’s, it became an Archdiocesan-wide cemetery. As history states, St. Mary’s has had more than 64,000 interments and there are about 175 burials that happen each year. Included are traditional burial plots and a Garden Mausoleum.
