Chartered in 1841 with one and one half acres on the banks of the White River, Beech Grove has grown to encompass over 100 acres, this makes it one of the largest cemeteries in the state of Indiana. By the turn of the century landscape expert, O.W. Crabbs had been recruited to plan and maintain the landscape – which resulted in making Beech Grove one of the finest examples of landscape architecture in the state.
Beech Grove remains committed to that ideal. Hence, the cemetery is a place of beauty and tranquility for the living as well as for those who have gone before. Beech Grove Cemetery is the final resting place for many of Muncie’s founding families, gas boom barons and veterans of every war from the Revolutionary War to the Vietnam War. Beech Grove is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places.
