In 1958, Ledgeview Memorial Park was founded by Kenneth & Doris Loehning. In September of that same year, Ledgeview became official with the first sale of cemetery property.
Just three years later, in 1961, a 5,000-pound marble statue was added to the center of the cemetery. The marble, which came from Italy, was constructed to resemble the Four Apostles.
Another huge addition to the cemetery occurred in 1971, when the Shrine of Rest Chapel Mausoleum was finished. The original "Founders Building" contained 795 crypts in this beautiful Mausoleum.
By 1974, demand for crypt space grew exponentially. To meet this demand, a 3,000-crypt expansion occurred.
One year later, Ledgeview Memorial Park added two new additions: The Sanctuary of Gethsemane & The Sanctuary of Resurrection.
Between the years of 1980 and 1996, several different memorial gardens were added to the cemetery to make the area even more beautiful and unique. The gardens are known as Memorial Gardens, Unit I; Memorial Gardens, Unit II; Sanctuary of Peace, which is the last indoor crypt area built by the Loehning's; and finally, Memorial Gardens, Unit III. The creation of these gardens occurred in that order.
In 1998, the cemetery continued to innovate its beauty by creating The Sanctuary of Eternal Lights. In addition, 508 indoor crypts were created to fill the needs of the community.
After these additions were completed, the Veterans Garden of Honor was completed in the same year. Then, just one year later, Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery was created.
Today, over 5,000 individuals own crypt spaces. And, in the very near future, the Groundbreaking for another Garden Mausoleum is scheduled to occur. In-between these innovations, Ledgeview strives and promises to maintain the beauty we have worked so hard to create.
