Fort Howard Memorial Park embraces its rich heritage and history while also bringing in contemporary, progressive designs, processes and cemetery concepts to the community. Balancing the old with the new has been perfected by Fort Howard Memorial Park.
Fort Howard Memorial Park was founded on January 22, 1862 and was known as “The Fox Hills Cemetery”. The cemetery was established as a non-sectarian, not-for-profit association governed by its lot owners. In 1940, a committal chapel and the original office was constructed off of Velp Avenue. This building was tore down in 2010 after vandals destroyed what was left of the building.
