New Cemetery Section
​There is an area of the Buena Vista Cemetery that is not yet open for plot purchases. The prices in that section may be higher than in the current cemetery areas and may vary by location. No sales or plot reservations will be made in this area until the Trustees decide there is a need to use this area.
