Fall is in the air at Calumet Park Cemetery in Merrillville…see below for upcoming events
It is a beautiful fall day in Merrillville. Below are some random shots of Calumet Park Cemetery at the corner of 73rd and Taft in Merrillville, Indiana. From atop the hill of crosses, it feels like the property is endless. There are over 400 acres of land owned by Calumet Park, with 170 developed. There are thousands of graves available from all price ranges in the area that is currently developed. At approximately 1100 burials per acre and at the current rate of usage, Calumet Park has land for close to 550 years. This means that it is OK to not worry about using up all the land. In fact, there are seven different possibilities for permanent placement of cremains, along with private and community mausoleums, flush bronze on granite sections, flush granite sections, above ground monument sections and so much more.
