Statue in the garden

Welcome to Whipps Garden Cemetery

The Whipps Cemetery Garden educates and inspires Howard County residents to preserve old cemeteries as a small community park, showcasing local history and culture in the style of the famous garden cemeteries of the 19th century. At the Whipps Cemetery Park, Howard County Master Gardeners and community volunteers plant and maintain heritage and native species in a variety of different settings, interspersed by pathways, benches, and around the tombstones. The plants, are typical of those grown in Maryland gardens of the 1800s.
