The Amaranth Abbey at 316 Dodridge Street is offers another alternative for cremation inurnment.
The poetic definition of amaranth is an imaginary flower that never fades.
With its Italianate architecture and striking granite exterior, Amaranth Abbey at Union retains its classical beauty, typical of its 1925 construction. Step inside to see a mausoleum aglow with white marble, bronze gates and breathtaking stained glass windows depicting biblical scenes.
Many prominent Columbus families purchased individual crypts or entire rooms to keep their loved ones close together. Others selected niches for placement of cremated remains.
Eventually, the Abbey's three-acre site will be developed, providing outdoor burial spaces. Plans have not been completed but will compliment the mausoleum's architecture without obscuring the stately building.
Union Cemetery is currently looking for seasonal mowers/grounds crew for a period of 7 months. This could lead to a permanent full time position. We are also accepting applications for a possible position as a family service counselor.
