Beech Grove Cemetery was founded on May 27, 1889 by the Beech Grove Cemetery Association as a rural cemetery for African Americans. Over 500 veterans, some from World War I, are buried here. In 2017, Springfield Township officially took possession of Beech Grove Cemetery after it had been abandon and in foreclosure for several years. The property is now maintained by the Springfield Township Public Works Department. Rehabilitation continues to restore the resting home of over 3,000 people.
Simple yet tasteful, Beech Grove Cemetery columbarium is where loved one’s cremated remains may rest in a private niche. 72 niches have been made available to help memorialize loved ones and protect their cremated remains. Surrounded by the historic cemetery, the columbarium is constructed of granite, and is now a central focal point of the grounds with a convenient drive leading to it.
Niches are now available by calling (513) 728-4285.
