Cemetery notes and/or description:
ST. PAUL EVANGELICAL BURIAL PARK

St. Paul Evangelical Burial Park was created in 1931 as the first perpetual care cemetery in the area. Louise Kolmer, nee Weidemann, donated 9 acres of land in memory of her husband, Conrad Kolmer, to be used exclusively for that purpose. The gift stipulated that St. Paul Evangelical Church was to permanently oversee the cemetery and establish a Not-For-Profit Corporation to administer the cemetery, which would be a non-denominational burial park. The 9 acres were plotted in six and four grave lots, along with single graves, and divided into sections. A memorial flag pole welcomes you as you enter the cemetery, paying tribute to our beloved dead.

In 2008 an additional 4.21 acres adjacent to the West of the original cemetery was purchased for future expansion and in 2010 two columbarium units were erected in the Eastern portion of the original cemetery to be used for cremains burial.
