Our Story

Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.

Established in 1956, Restlawn Memorial Gardens in Salem, Oregon is located a few miles from the Oregon State capital building. Surrounded by farmland and the Oregon Mountains, and overlooking the lush Willamette Valley, the flat grounds feature wonderful trees and gardens. There are old unique monuments in the gardens, including a mural of the Last Supper, a shepherd and sheep, and an open Bible.

In the mid 1980's, Restlawn funeral home was added to the cemetery grounds. Understanding the growing needs of West Salem and Polk county, Restlawn Funeral Home was built to meet the needs of the community. Restlawn has a modern design and continues to make adjustments in order to grow with our community.

Restlawn offers traditional funerals, personalized funerals, memorial and graveside services, various cremation options, military honors for Veterans, traditional in-ground burials, niches, lawn crypts, columbariums, mausoleums, and private estate options.
