In 1963, Western Reserve Memorial Gardens was established in the peaceful community of Chesterland. The location selected is historically significant considering it was part of the original “Western Reserve,” which was established by Moses Cleaveland and the Connecticut Land Company in the 1700’s.
All 40 acres originally established are still around today, and each acre has provided a quiet and serene resting place for thousands of individuals.
Western Reserve Memorial Gardens has worked to maintain and innovate these acres. Most notably, Western Reserve is recognized as one of the largest Non-Denominational Gardens, as Gardens have been designed for those of all denominations as well as those with no particular religious affiliation.
In addition to large Non-Denominational gardens, Western Reserve is also very proud to be the home of one of the largest Veteran’s Gardens in northern Ohio.
