Parsons Cemetery Invites You
to explore the historic section identified on the

Map as old part (OP) and highlighted in yellow


This Tour is specifically designed to work with bus tours and assumes the bus will drop off walkers at the main entrance for a one hour visitation period


When you click on a slide it will stop the slide show and offer you a chance to enlarge and/or save it, and

you may need to open the bottom of each slide there is a link in orange that reads "View Desktop Version".  You may need to click on this link to enlarge the slide. 


This section radiates out from the Benjamin Parsons Family Plot near Bishops Circle


However, the history of those resting in Parsons Cemetery does not stop in the Historic Section, rather it continues to the waterfront, 4/5 mile walk from N. Division Street.  The Through the Centuries: Continuing the Historic Walking Tour Throughout Parsons Cemetery Tour takes you forward to today and is better suited for those with more time and individual transportation.


Parsons Cemetery is still an operational cemetery, and we ask you respect funerals in progress and privacy for those attending or visiting specific graves.
