The initial cemetery had its first burial in 1836. In 1909, the Palmer's Prairie Cemetery was founded and more acreage was purchased. In 1924, additional land was needed and a group of area businessmen formed a corporation, issued shares of stock for capital, purchased 45 acres, and the cemetery was renamed Southlawn Cemetery.
The loss of a pet can be very emotional. It is only appropriate to say farewell in a meaningful way. In April of 2010, K. R. and Kerry Palmer founded a local cemetery and crematory strictly for pets. As a locally owned, family operated business, we are able to provide sensitive care and respect for your pet.
