Evergreen Burial Park was established in 1916 in what was then Roanoke County. The cemetery was originally created by three men, A.G. Chewning, C.M. Armes, and C.B. Cole, who formed the "Evergreen Development Company" in 1915. Because the old City Cemetery was already at capacity, the three men found themselves with a business opportunity.
Evergeen Burial Park was situated closer to Roanoke City than most other cemeteries in the County, and it would also be set up as a perpertual care cemetery, where a portion of revenues would be set aside for on-going maintenance, something other nearby cemeteries did not offer.
