St. John's Norway Cemetery has developed in a beautiful natural setting. The extensive varied treescape reaches deep into the earth, yet stretches tall to the sky, drawing strength from creation: the sun and the rain. Consider this: the natural, historical setting of St. John's is a powerful statement of the role we each play in the cosmic cycle of life, death and rebirth to new life.
