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!

Prospect Hill in Spring

The turn of the seasons brings new growth and beauty into the world, including in Prospect Hill Cemetery. Not only are the trees and bushes showing renewed color and foliage. Families are encouraged to plant bulbs or beautify the graves of loved relations and friends with cut seasonal flowers. Just a gentle reminder that while life goes on, those dear to us are not forgotten.
