The historic cemetery was founded in 1831 and used as an area to build large underground vaults for the departed. Though unseen above ground, the vaults are made of large marble slabs and protected with a lock and key. During the 19th century, the bright rock was named the Snowflake Marble. To this day, the stone’s sparkling white brilliance is preserved beneath the grassy surface.
