PROSPECT HILL: A COMMUNITY TREASURE

Welcome to Prospect Hill Cemetery, a six-acre, green oasis in the heart of Towson, Maryland. In operation since 1892, the cemetery is the final resting place of some of Baltimore County’s most prominent and interesting citizens. Prospect Hill is a non-denominational and non-profit cemetery managed by an all-volunteer board.

Prospect Hill is both richly historic and an active, perpetual care cemetery that offers cremation and traditional ground burial lots. Contact us to learn what options are available for you and your family.

Our park-like grounds with winding paths provide a respite from the busy town surrounding them. Take a moment to stroll through this peaceful place online or in person – and step into Baltimore County history!

Iconic Tree

November 6-13, 2020 was been declared “Historic Prospect Hill Cemetery Week” in Baltimore County by County Executive John A. Olszewski, Jr. A small ceremony to honor the cemetery’s 128-year history and the life of an even older copper beech tree took place on November 6th. The iconic copper beech is dying and must be taken down shortly, but the wood will be repurposed by Sandtown Furniture Co., which designs and produces custom furniture. More here and here.

Prospect Hill depends on volunteers to provide financial support. Your generous, tax-deductible donations make it possible for us as a 501(c)13 charitable organization to continue to maintain and beautify the cemetery.
