Maple Shade Cemetery

Maple Shade Cemetery is also located on East Washington Street, just east of the Administration Building. Access is available off Auburn Road just north of East Washington Street as well. There are no  graves available for purchase in Maple Shade.

 

Thank you Scouts!

 Katherine Blazek 2017 Girl Scout Award Community Service Project at Shadyside and Maple Shade Cemetery

Katie installed rain barrels, one at Maple Shade and one at Shadyside, for her community service project to earn her Girl Scout Gold Award.  She noticed a need for the community and full filled it.  A flower bed surrounding the enviro-friendly containers added the perfect finishing touch.  Thank you Katherine Blazek.

This is a great website link to find the grave of ancestors.  If a picture of the grave site you are searching for is not available, you may fill out a request and dedicated volunteers will search it out, take a picture, and send it to you via email.

Auburn is very fortunate to have one of those volunteers living in our township.
