Mount Pleasant Cemetery
The present cemetery is comprised of about 52 acres, nearly 100 have been lost over the decades to development. Present burials number nearly 20,000, yet the cemtery still retains about 40% of the remaining burial space. Major efforts have been put in place in the last few years to bring the cemetery back to its place of prominence in the community. These efforts will not occur overnight, but will be slow and gradual in their implementation. A new section of the cemetery has been opened, and the Glidden Chapel has been repaired and updated. As a reflection of the history of Sioux Falls from its beginning, Mt. Pleasant will continue to keep pace with Sioux Falls into its future with new and innovative ideas for the coming generations.
