Welcome to the Mount Pleasant Cemetery website. We are happy you have stopped to visit us. We have been part of Sioux Falls for 139 years, from the time when the population of the town was 150 people. During every decade and period of the City’s development we have been here to witness the changes and have become the final resting place of thousands of those who laboured to make Sioux Falls what it is today. We are proud to have provided the services we have to the many who have come to us. We invite you to explore our history and the many services we provide. Our burial options are the widest and most flexible in the area, including two burials in a single space and no requirement for grave liners or burial vaults, thereby saving non-renewable resources and money.
As an example of our innovation and forward looking vision we are proud to have become the first and currently only Cemetery in the upper midwest to be certified as a Provider of the Green Burial Council. We are excited and impressed with the new Green Burial Movement that is spreading across the country. It is a return to a simple and dignified way of saying goodbye to your loved ones, a way that not only saves tremendous amounts of non-renewable resources but thousands of dollars in funeral costs as well. Please check our Going Green page and download our “Green Burial Brochure and Policy Statement” as well and if you find that this, along with our other burial options makes as much sense as we do give us a call at 339-4760 and we will answer all your questions.
