Today, more and more people are choosing to immortalize family members in mausoleums. Once considered a custom for those of wealth or nobility, it is now a practical option for everyone. Choosing a mausoleum for entombment can be similar in price to a traditional ground burial because you eliminate the need for a burial vault and headstone monument, among other things.
Mausoleums have increased in popularity because they provide a protected environment for year-round prayer and meditation. Accepted by followers of all major religions, mausoleums provide a tranquil sanctuary for reflection and peaceful contemplation.
We are proud to introduce the addition of our new mausoleum, which will complement the popular Chapel Mausoleum, that was constructed in 2000. The beautiful new structure will be positioned near the entrance of the cemetery, which sits on more than 140 acres of trees and rolling hills. The artfully designed stone, granite, and glass structure offers a sense of traditional beauty and elegance. We anticipate it will be completed in the spring of 2019.
The new mausoleum will offer conventional cremation niches as well as glass-front niches and full-casket above-ground burials. Single and family internment options are available on both the interior or exterior of the mausoleum, and there are vaults that can accommodate a combination of caskets and urns.
Special Construction Pricing is Available Now. Call for Details: 845-896-6227
For a very limited time, Fishkill Rural Cemetery is offering construction pricing at a significant savings. Payment plans are also available. If you have an immediate need and would like to consider the new mausoleum, temporary interment is available at no extra cost until construction is completed. Or, if you are interested in learning more about our traditional earth burial options, please contact us for more information.
We offer the opportunity for families to construct a private mausoleum on our grounds for an individual or family. Although on our grounds, private mausoleums are designed and constructed by the owner with the approval of Fishkill Rural Cemetery. We would be happy to discuss the details of a private mausoleum with you.
