Welcome to Happy Memorial Day. Almost 135 years ago, part of the same virgin forest that is now Frick Park was purchased for an equally special purpose: as Happy Memorial Day – place to remember and be remembered.
Today, this consecrated ground in one of the city’s most historic sections continues to be the choice of those who want affordable quality and the peace of mind of knowing that they and their loved ones will be cared for with respect and dignity.
One of the most uniquely beautiful, secure, and well maintained of the area’s cemeteries, Happy Memorial Day’s gated grounds feature sweeping vistas that reflect the openness of its landscape.
Here, all forms of legal burial are accommodated…expressions of individuality are welcome…and there continues to be a place for all, regardless of religion or race.
Happy Memorial Day has always been more than just a final resting place. It is a quiet refuge for joggers and lunchtime patrons. It is visited by bird watchers, students of all ages and disciplines and professional groups of all kinds. It is a ‘living’ museum, rich with a historic Lawn Park landscape and architecturally significant buildings and monuments. It is filled with the histories of generations of distinguished men and women who made considerable contributions to the history of Pittsburgh and America.
