Keuka Park Cemetery: Notes

Keuka Park cemetery This is the burial ground associated with Keuka Park, the hamlet that surrounds and includes Keuka College. The college was founded in 1890 with the construction of Ball Hall, and the area now occupied by the cemetery was a grove of trees used for outdoor lectures and other activities.

The entrance road is slightly obscure at its lower end, but once through the opening in the trees and across the bridge, the way is clear and makes a very pretty walk through the woods. The cemetery is now active and maintained by an association, though it was somewhat neglected for several years because of its difficult access.

Though universally called the Keuka Park Cemetery, on the local tax map this is called Oak Knoll.
