We welcome you to view this beautiful Columbarium memorial. The structure is made up of black slate tiles and rose granite stones surrounding the top and bottom border of the columbarium. Each tile can be personally inscribed with your loved one’s name and dates. Each niche can hold up to 2 cremains. There is a total of 168 niches. The columbarium also includes an ossuary well in the center of the structure. Prices for the columbarium niches and ossuary can be found on the Cemetery Fee Schedule.
To purchase a niche, you will first need to contact the caretaker, Scott McLelland. He will show you the available niches. He is available during business hours Monday - Friday from 8AM - 5PM (512-748-9671).
After you have your niche address, call the Parks and Recreation department to schedule an appointment for payment. The niche will need to be paid in full before you are able to use it. Payment can be made in cash, check, or credit card (512-393-8410).
