Parsons Cemetery (MDPACS)
Wreaths across America 2018
Parsons Cemetery is today both operational and historic. It is an urban green space, an outdoor museum, and in the words of Keith Eggener, urban cemeteries "are where life meets death, nature meets city, and present meets past."
Thank you for visiting our website and our Facebook Page. Both our website and Facebook Page will be continuously updated with new information, historical information, pictures and videos. We invite you to send us your information on the cemetery and your loved ones, information that we can share with others.
Please share your family information on your veteran(s) with the Parsons Cemetery Advisory Committee for inclusion in Parsons Cemetery's database. Please use the to firstname.lastname@example.org url. Thank you.
