Service and Care since 1889

The first interment was made September 1, 1889. This Cemetery is in the Hamlet of Valhalla in the township of Mount Pleasant, Westchester County, New York. It has frontage of about one mile on the Rail Road track with a gradual ascent to the highest point of land between Tarrytown and Long Island Sound.”
