Designed by Daniel Fischer, Landscape Architect with EMC Engineering, Inc. and a Board Member who he donated his time and company resources to prepare the Master Plan resulting in a Gift-In-Kind to LePageville Memorial Cemetery, Inc. in the amount of $2,800.00
The entrance was designed to draw visitors through the gateway arch and into the cemetery. A paved gathering area highlighted with a memorial monument provides a peaceful setting to reflect on the history of LePageville and pay tribute to those who are buried in the woods beyond.
