St. Paul's Cemetery
St. Paul’s Cemetery was established in 1809, along with other local church cemeteries. Today, St. Paul’s Cemetery is the final resting place of over 1,500 former church leaders, including the Rev. James T. Johnston and the Rev. George H. Norton, as well as other members of our congregation and community. The cemetery currently has no plots available for purchase or space in the columbarium. In 2011 St. Paul’s supplemented the columbarium with the addition of the Mark J. Hulkower Memorial Garden where ashes may be strewn. If you are interested in learning more about the memorial garden, please contact Andrew Blair, Managing Trustee, St. Paul’s Cemetery, at (202) 329-2531 or [email protected].
