Virtual Ways to Enjoy Cedar Hill Cemetery

Cedar Hill Cemetery Foundation made the difficult decision to cancel on-site programming for our 2020 season. Social distancing requirements regarding masks, spacing, and group size limit our ability to provide a comfortable program experience.

Although we can’t meet in person, the Foundation still aspires to share Cedar Hill’s art, history, and natural resources with you.

In addition to our popular Notable of the Month emails and Facebook posts, we have added new content to our social media distribution.

The Foundation has developed online materials featuring highlights from canceled programs. New webpages and videos provide a virtual way to enjoy the cemetery.

Check out our YouTube channel to view short videos on a variety of topics. Posted to date: Richard Beckwith, Titanic Survivor; Barnstormers & Aviators; Notable Trees; The Celtic Cross; Jacob Weidenmann, Landscape Architect; and Monumental Man: James G. Batterson.

More videos are in the works, so don’t forget to like and subscribe to our channel.

New content has been added to our website as well including When Disaster Strikes, Barnstormers & Aviators, Stories in Stone, Sam & Elizabeth’s World, Monumental Man: James G. Batterson, and Angels Among Us.

The online exhibition Remarkable Women showcases some of the extraordinary women laid to rest at Cedar Hill. The downloadable PDF was created to celebrate the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote.

Cedar Hill staff and volunteers continue to research new subjects and look forward to sharing details with you. We will send email blasts, post on Facebook, upload videos to YouTube, and update our website over time.

Some of this research will be included in new thematic tours to hopefully debut in 2021. We are currently working on Planes, Trains & Automobiles and The Plot Thickens.

Titanic survivor Richard Beckwith's story is told in new video.
