This cemetery is set in a beautiful environment filled with trees, whining roads and easy going hills. This cemetery is very old and has many historical people within its grounds- even the well know Uncle Sam!

This historic cemetery is quite large and is very interesting. Many Troy residents are buried here who are also known on a national level. The Earl Chapel has gorgeous stain glass windows.

A large and historic cemetery perfect for a history buff or hikers. Many of the monuments have beautiful stonework and there are amazing views of the city of Troy and across the river.

Beautiful grounds and very well kept up. I think they have started outdoor movies as well. Drive through and see Uncle Sam's grave.

We have 2 gravesites here, it's right along a major road, it is very well maintained, paved roads for the most part. Spectacular views of Troy from a high vantage point with a board describing various locations.
