Description


MOLINE MEMORIAL PARK CEMETERY, formerly VALHALLA BURIAL PARK, began as a park cemetery in 1928. An early promotional advertisement identified VALHALLA PARK as “The Most Beautiful Burial Park in Illinois”.

Due to Deere & Company expanding along the Mississippi River, The East Moline City Council approved an ordinance to close WATERTOWN CEMETERY on July 16, 1928. During the months of September and October 1928, 139 bodies were moved from WATERTOWN CEMETERY to MOLINE MEMORIAL PARK CEMETERY.
