This was also the old cemetery for the New York Province of the Society of Jesus (that is, the New York area of the Jesuits, the Catholic order of priests that runs Georgetown University, Fordham University and Boston College among others). The cemetery was on the grounds of St. Andrew's-on-the-Hudson, the novitiate (starting seminary) for the Jesuits in New York.

The cemetery is located between Roth Hall and The Lodges at the North end of the campus

The Jesuits occupied St. Andrew-on-Hudson from 1903 until 1968 and maintained a cemetery on their grounds. The Culinary Institute of America purchased the property soon after and moved to the Hudson Valley from New Haven, CT in 1972. The main seminary building, now known as Roth Hall, houses three public restaurants and many of the college’s classrooms and teaching kitchens .Visitors to the campus can obtain a key to the cemetery from the CIA Campus Safety office and are welcome to visit.

An unpretentious headstone in a cemetery marks the final resting place of one of the great thinkers of the 20th century. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin who was one of the first Catholic scholars to espouse the theory of evolution and to seek a serious reconciliation of modern science and religion. He was a professor of geology at the Catholic Institute in Paris, director of the National Geological Survey of China, and director of the National Research Center of France. Fr. Teilhard lived in China for many years and played a major role in the discovery of Peking Man . He was living in New York City at the time of his death -
