Steelmantown Has State’s Lone ‘Green’ Cemetery

Contrast what we’ve come to expect as a “proper” funeral with the burial practices of the 17th and 18th centuries in America when the deceased truly found a “resting place” in and among nature. Such is the atmosphere Steelmantown Cemetery seeks to create for those who have died, providing a sanctuary of repose surrounded by massive oak, cedar and pine trees, running alongside natural cedar and cranberry bogs surrounded by 25,000 acres forever protected as part of the Belleplain State Forest.
