Limestone poodles, spaniels, and hounds with baskets of flowers welcome you to this secluded site.
Reached through quiet wooded paths, the Pet Cemetery is a tranquil memorial to the pet dogs that Marjorie Post loved throughout her life. Plants include forget-me-nots, “sweetbox” and vinca groundcover.
Post’s last dog, Scampi, was laid to rest in the Pet Cemetery in 1972. The great love of dogs is a tradition that many of Post’s family members carried on and they continued to memorialize their beloved four-legged friends in the Pet Cemetery through the 1980s.
