Fairview Cemetery New Albany, IN

New Albany’s second city cemetery, Northern Burial Ground located at Culbertson Avenue and East 6th St. New Albany, Indiana in Floyd County. D.W. and Margaret Wilson sold land to the city for the cemetery that was formed on July 30, 1841. With the first burial the next day.

From 1864 thru 1875 there was a national movement to create a park like atmosphere in cemeteries, so some improvements were done at that time to this cemetery. The iron entrance gate was added in 1890. Among those buried here are victims from an 1844 steamboat disaster and Indiana Governor Ashbel P. Willard. Some of the earliest vaults date back to the mid 1800s.

Today this cemetery needs some loving attention. The grounds are being mowed however looking around you see years of neglect.

This was very unique to see that someone set a new
stone and placed the old stone below to see.
