Ithaca City Cemetery


The Ithaca City Cemetery is a 16-acre oasis of green in downtown Ithaca, NY with views overlooking Cayuga Lake. The earliest recorded burials date to the 1790’s. The Cemetery is home to the oldest and largest trees in the City of Ithaca. Majestic white and red oaks, eastern hemlocks and white pines are among the largest trees in the cemetery. More recently planted trees are typically native species with an intention to improve the habitat for native wildlife, particularly birds. The cemetery is no longer very active in burials but now serves as a beautiful refuge for city residents to enjoy walking, running, biking, birding and relaxing in nature. The City Cemetery is maintained by the City of Ithaca Parks and Forestry Department with support and help from the Friends of the City Cemetery and Historic Ithaca.
