Penn Forest Natural Burial Park

Friends Cemetery, Stormstown, PA

The Friends Cemetery is located just off Halfmoon Valley Rd. (map below) a few miles southwest of Stormstown.  It is near the road, on the right hand side if you are headed northeast from Altoona.  A few years ago the cemetery board voted to permit “green” burial, with the body wrapped in a simple shroud if desired and without embalming.  The only stipulation is that the top of the burial container or shroud must be no less than four feet below the ground surface.

The cost of a burial plot is just $150.

If you would like to arrange a visit to see the cemetery and find out what plots are available,  call the board president:
