The non-denominational Onondaga Valley cemetery has an area of about 29 acres. The oldest parts of the cemetery are section 1 though 6. A fire had destroyed several of their historic records. Burials have been conducted here as early as January 1810. The roads in the old section are very curvy and go up and down the hillside. Please drive carefully. Most of the really old monuments and family plots can be found here. There is an old cemetery vault located in section 6. The former chapel, built by architect O.V. Clark in 1904, now houses the cemetery offices. The newer part is the northern area of the cemetery, with a mausoleum located in section 22, which was opened in 2004. Section 18, also called "Cremation Garden" has no upright grave stones, all grave markers are flush with the ground. Section markers can often be found 6-9 feet up on the trunks of the old trees in the cemetery. There is lots of room for expansion, north of Section 22, and west of Valley View.
Less than 2 miles north on the same road (Valley Drive) is the back entrance to the Catholic Saint Agnes Cemetery.
