Historic Evergreen Lawn Cemetery is a beautiful cemetery located at 13430 Bloomingdale Rd, across from Akron High School in the Town of Newstead, NY. Originally known as Bloomingdale Cemetery, it was chartered in 1893 at the office of H.H. Newton, an Akron merchant. It was the first cemetery built in close proximity to the Village of Akron.

There are approximately 6,200 “permanent residents” in Evergreen Lawn Cemetery’s 7.5 acres, which includes two columbaria and a cremation scatter garden. Among its most notable residents are Harrison Morton Perry, the founder of Perry’s Ice Cream (1888-1975), and Henry Newman (1841-1910) who co-owned the H.L. and W.C. Newman Co., one of the region’s leading producers of flour and cement in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Evergreen Lawn is also the final resting place for many veterans of U.S. military conflicts, including the War of 1812, the Civil War, World War I and World War II, as well as those in Korea, Vietnam, and the Persian Gulf

While it is certainly an historic cemetery, burial space in Evergreen Lawn is still available. We are here to assist and support families with pre-planning for their eventual needs, or at the time when a death occurs. We pledge reverence and dignity in the cemetery’s daily operations, and are committed to assuring its future.
