A Link Between the Cemetery and the Community
The Center is the 21st century centerpiece of historic, pastoral Maple Grove Cemetery. Peter Gisolfi of Peter Gisolfi Associates, Architects and Landscape Architects, designed The Center as a building that is both spiritual and secular, it is a link between the cemetery and the community and a place to engage visitors spiritually, physically and culturally. With an atmosphere of peace and quiet dignity, The Center offers families a place to gather for interment services, memorial celebrations and remembrance events.
Guests are welcomed into a sunlit lobby by the soft colors of a two-story stained glass window and the tranquil sounds of a waterfall. Several beautifully appointed, rentable rooms, accommodating up to 150 people, provide gracious and private settings for family and friends to come together – to share cherished memories and to create new ones. Full catering options are available in some of the rooms. Designed to be environmentally sustainable, this facility demonstrates respect for the future and reverence for the past.
