Memorial Park

Established in 1873, this historic cemetery has been serving the Temple's members as a final and befitting resting place.

Located in Southeast D.C., the area has been going through a period of improvement and gentrification. A recently completed renovation of the cemetery property has enhanced the serene, bucolic nature of the grounds and facilities.
