A Place to Rest
Imagine a garden of serenity, with exquisite plantings and shaded benches where family and friends can gather and reflect, in the heart of Duke Gardens and the Duke University Campus.
Stones line the winding paths, engraved with the names and stories of those whose ashes are buried here.
Scores of Duke alumni, faculty and friends have chosen to have their remains rest at Duke forever.
Donors who have contributed $25,000 or more to the Sarah P. Duke Gardens Endowment Fund may have the opportunity to have their ashes buried in the Memorial Garden.*
