Memorial Brick Program-Cemetery

A Veterans Memorial is currently being constructed to pay respect to all veterans, including the over 2000 that are buried at the Historic Sumter Cemetery. This project will be completed by early May and will be dedicated later that month. In conjunction with the memorial, a 3-foot brick path has been added around the perimeter to allow people to memorialize family and friends. Engraved bricks will cost $75. What remains after engraving costs will be used to fund additional memorial projects and historic features.

Please download this form and follow instructions to order bricks.
