We Salute Our Veterans – Continuing the Tradition

The first Veterans Day Observance was held at Mount Olivet in 2006. We are proud to  continue this tradition with the help of The God Bless America Motorcycle Color Guard and the Friends of Mount Olivet Cemetery. This is a community-wide program.

Please share with your friends. Thank you.

Bringing the dead to life…

When we bury the dead, the grave site is marked with a gravestone to memorialize people’s lives spent here on earth.  If the dead could talk to us, their life stories could fill a book.

In 1859 a vision became reality when a few men of the Hanover area built Mount Olivet Cemetery.  The history about the cemetery is recorded not only in newspapers and books, but on the monuments and gravestones, waiting to be interpreted.
