Cemetery notes and/or description:
Maryland Veterans Cemetery is located on U.S. Route 301, approximately 8 miles south of Upper Marlboro, Maryland. The cemetery consists of 102 acres and was formerly used for agricultural purposes. Currently, the cemetery is conducting more than 825 burials each year and is the final resting place for over 17,000 Maryland veterans and their dependents. The cemetery opened for burial in July 1978 and is expected to provide a total of 50,000 burial sites.

The Memorial Chapel at the cemetery was dedicated to the memory of Senator Edward T. Conroy, who was instrumental in the passage of legislation enabling the development of Maryland's State Veterans Cemeteries.

Cemetery gates will be open to visitors every day of the year from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. The gates will close at 4:45 p.m. to allow visitors to exit the cemetery. The cemetery will remain open until 8:00 p.m. on Memorial Day (the date of State observance).

Cut flowers may be placed on graves at any time (no glass) containers. Flowers and temporary containers will be removed from graves as soon as bouquets become unsightly. During the growing season when grass requires cutting, all flowers—both fresh and those that have become unsightly—will be removed prior to grounds maintenance.
