Mt. Zion Temple Cemetery is owned by Mount Zion Hebrew Congregation, a Reform Jewish congregation in St, Paul, MN.

Cemetery History

Mt. Zion Temple Cemetery traces is history back to when them Mt. Zion Hebrew Association was first chartered in 1856. Members of the congregation began collecting funds for the creation of a burial ground, on a half-acre lot, located at the south-west corner of what is now Front Ave & Sylvan St., directly across from Oakland Cemetery.

In 1889, the half-acre lot cemetery reached full capacity. The congregation bought five acres on the east-side of Payne Ave, right where Larpenteur Ave. had originally ended. The congregation moved 100 bodies from the half-acre lot to the new cemetery.

From time to time the congregation had acquired additional land for the cemetery. By 1970 it covered fifteen acres between California and Kingston.

When Ramsey County officials wanted to extend Larpenteur Ave. through to Arcade St., they offered to grant the congregation six additional acres to the north of the cemetery. The Congregation agreed. All bodies that laid south of Larpenteur were moved.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
