Make arrangements for final resting place

Mountain View Cemetery has recently opened up space to expand its three memorial options. Remember your loved ones amidst the lush green panoramas and historic views at Mountain View. 

Columbaria and niches

A columbarium is an above-ground structure designed to hold containers of cremated remains. Niches are the compartments in columbaria that hold interments.

All niches at Mountain View are companion niches that can hold up to two interments of cremated remains.

You have the option to buy custom family columbaria, or to buy a companion niche in a shared columbarium.

In-ground cremation space

Lots for cremated remains can be purchased for either two or four interments.  

In-ground casket burial

Each casket burial lot accommodates two caskets and eight cremated remains. The lot can be reused after remains have been buried for 40 years.

Mountain View Cemetery is a hybrid green cemetery through the Green Burial Council. Burials do not require the use of embalming, or vaults and liners. Biodegradable urns and caskets are also accepted.


Prices do not include tax.

Contact the cemetery directly for more information, or to purchase an interment space.
