In the spring of 2016 Eastport United Methodist Church realized a long term dream. We were able to create a final resting place for our members and families, located right here at our own church home. The forty-eight niche unit is made of polished granite throughout the structure; the outside frame in a soft gray, and the niche face plates and borders in a light mahogany, to complement the brick of the retaining wall. The Columbarium Committee felt committed to use a local family-owned company which has been in the monument business for many years. Construction of the columbarium was done off site and then delivered and set into place on the stamped concrete base designed for the area in front of the retaining wall. Two granite memorial benches were donated and placed on each side facing the niches, to provide a place for family and friends to sit and remember their loved ones. The area is a beautiful complement to our church and provides a new and meaningful ministry to our church family.
