BECOME PART OF HISTORY
St. Luke’s Historic Church & Museum is home to Virginia’s Oldest open cemetery. With the oldest marked grave dated 1767 and numerous unmarked graves nestled by the ancient church building, St. Luke’s cemeteries began as a church graveyard after the church was built in the late 17th Century. Memorial stones surround the building to adorn the existing landscape of the sacred grounds. Today, the hallowed grounds give witness to lives and memories of generations past. All are welcome to tour our grounds, walk the serene landscape, and enjoy the peaceful natural environment. Many come to visit loved ones and ancestors. The carefully maintained cemetery is a testament to our pledge of perpetual care – that we will always care for this place. Our rich history spans four centuries. Yet, our history is not complete. We may be Virginia’s Oldest Cemetery, but there remains room for you to “Become Part of History”.
Note: Our cemetery is open to people of all faiths, creeds and nationalities. Affiliation with our organization is not a requirement for purchase.
