Mount Pleasant Cemetery

Mount Pleasant Cemetery is the oldest historic place in Erie and is one of the last remaining prairie cemeteries in the United States. Located at 520 Colliers Blvd., the rich history and incredible mountain views make for a highly coveted final resting place.

Cemetery Rules & Regulations

Please view the Town of Erie's ordinance governing the uses at the Mount Pleasant Cemetery.

Beginning in June 2021, the Town of Erie decided that it would be best to begin assigning plots in sequential order for bookkeeping and tracking purposes. This utilizes areas of the Cemetery where Town records indicate vacancy and fulfills the needs for burials and purchases in a manner that is easier to document.  

If you intend to conduct a burial, place a marker or monument (headstone), decorate or have a service at the cemetery, you must work through the Cemetery Manager for any and all of these services, and it may be needed that you also work with a mortuary or a memorial service center.
