Fairview is situated on 80 acres of beautiful, rolling land in the city of Bismarck and was established by pioneers as a non-sectarian cemetery serving the whole community. Earliest recorded burials took place in 1878.
The caring staff of Fairview Cemetery provides peaceful and well-maintained grounds designed to meet the needs of each family and to commemorate the lives of those buried on the grounds. In 1991, local veterans organizations designated a special burial area for all veterans which includes a beautiful flagpole area and garden. Its status as a non-profit corporation ensures continuing operation in the public’s interest.
The Fairview Perpetual Care Fund, held in irrevocable trust, provides continuing care even after a loved one’s survivors are gone.
It’s easier to do this now, when there is time to inspect and select with care than when the sudden, imperative need arises. The time to think about a last resting place is before the day of need, when countless other pressures intrude and grief afflicts. Memorial counselors are able to provide information on purchasing cemetery plots or cremation niches for your pre-planning needs.
