Beech Grove Cemetery Comes to Life is an exploration of the cemetery’s history and evolution, but also the lives of those buried there. Pioneers, politicians, soldiers, the rich and poor, doctors, shopkeepers, industry titans, suffragettes, and former slaves—44,000 unique individuals lay at rest in Beech Grove Cemetery. Those buried there represent the movers and shakers of Muncie, the men and women who shaped the city from an agricultural backwater, to a regional manufacturing capital of the industrial revolution, and have helped guide it after industry left.

Cemeteries are depositories of our ancestors—the men and women, over 44,000 in Beech Grove Cemetery alone, who shaped the evolution of our current times. While the intricacies of the lives of those interred are not readily available in each headstone, their burial markers do provide a crucial memorial designating the mortal remnants of the generations that precede us, while offering a reminder of the ultimate fate awaiting each and every one of us. Beech Grove Cemetery is a valuable resource for genealogists, historians, students of architecture and landscape design, photographers, and the general public. It is our hope that the information contained within this book will instill a deep interest and respect for the 44,000 buried within the walls of Beech Grove Cemetery.
