Mount Olivet Cemetery

History of the Town of Tonawanda 1805-1930", published by Local Historian, Frederick S. Parkhurst, Ph. D.
Mount Olivet Cemetery is situated on the west side of Delaware Avenue, just north of the junction of Delaware Road and Delaware Avenue and opposite Elm Lawn.
Established in 1912 & originally containing 28 acres, additional tract extended west to Elmwood Ave & Military Rd was purchased later which more than doubled acreage.
The grounds contain a beautiful elm grove, part of the original woods of the Knoche farm. A beautiful chapel was erected in 1931 at a cost of $32,000. Over 5000 burials have been made since 1912.While there are many Roman Catholic Cemeteries in Buffalo and vicinity, Mount Olivet being accessible by way of Delaware Avenue and located in a section of the town which will be thickly settled in years to come will attract lot owners by its well drained grounds and rural beauty.
