Evergreen Cemetery Association - Memorial Gardens Columbarium

Memorial Gardens Columbarium

The Evergreen Cemetery Association has experienced an increasing number of cremation burials along with fewer traditional burials. To accommodate this growing trend, we now offer the option of above-ground cremation burials in a Columbarium.

Our first Columbarium was installed in Memorial Gardens Cemetery north of Brainerd in the fall of 2012 with landscaping work completed the following spring. It is a 48-niche unit from Coldspring Granite (24 niches on two sides) with polished Moonlight Gray granite trim and polished Carnelian granite niche panels.


Option #1  
  One Niche allowing for placement of the cremated body of one person. Includes one opening and closing of the niche. 
Option #2  
  One Niche allowing for placement of the cremated bodies of two persons. Includes two openings and closings of the niche. 
Option #3  
  Placement of a second cremated body in a Niche previously purchased under Option #1. Includes one opening and closing of the niche. 

Niche panel engraving fees are not included in the niche purchase prices.

All options and engraving subject to provisions in the niche Purchase Agreement.

Please contact the cemetery office for current prices.

Each niche is 10" deep front to back and tapered - 11" x 11" up front, reducing to 10" x 10" in back. Be sure to plan ahead for those dimensions, especially when two urns will be placed in a niche.

Please contact us by phone or email if you would like more information about our Columbarium.

Here are a few photos of the Columbarium at Memorial Gardens Cemetery. It is located on the east side of the Cemetery in an area set aside for the installation of additional columbaria in the future.
