ABOUT USBoone Memorial Gardens is located on South Montana Street, west of the city of Boone, in Des Moines township, Boone County, Iowa.
HISTORYBoone Memorial Gardens, Inc. was established in the early 1950's as the owner of the cemetery on a parcel of land known as the Wagner Farm. The original plan was to form sections or gardens. Monuments were to be placed ground level; so as not to impede the beauty or maintenance of the cemetery. Permanent vases filled with flowers would give the illusion of a flower-filled garden. This principle remains the foundation of the cemetery.
On July 6, 1971 articles of incorporation were adopted to establish the Boone Memorial Gardens Cemetery Association; a non-profit, member-owned cemetery; and remains in effect to this day.
