Plaque Text

This cemetery is a very good example of the type of rural cemetery that emerged in the United States and Canada in the 19th century. Developed from 1873 on rolling terrain bordered by a forest, Beechwood is characterized by winding roads, picturesque vistas and numerous wooded groves, as well as by the wide variety of trees, shrubs and ornamental plants. Being also the site of the National Military Cemetery of the Canadian Forces, Beechwood, with its beautiful setting and many monuments of considerable artistic and historical interest, invites contemplation and remembrance.
