|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Mount Zion Cemetery, established about 1857, was first located on the corner of Front and Sylvan (near Oakland Cemetery), from 1856 to 1889, then the bodies were moved to this site. Records prior to 1921 are part of the congregational records. There are approximately 7 acres with 1500 burials. Records are at the Mount Zion Synagogue (Reform) at 1300 Summit Avenue, St. Paul.
For almost twenty years, this was the only Jewish cemetery in Minnesota. Bodies were brought from Mankato and Minneapolis for burial here.
