ABOUT CALVARY CEMETERY 
In January 1894, a farm on Five Mile Drive was purchased by the church and the land was used to open Calvary Cemetery. For over 125 years, Calvary Cemetery has been the preferred resting place for Catholic and other Christian families from across Tompkins County. The Cemetery is owned and cared for by Immaculate Conception Church.
