Our Story

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. 

Where it all started 

West Salem was a beautiful farming community bordered by the majestic Willamette River and the West Salem hillside. In the early 1950's a 52 acre parcel of land was purchased on the corner of Highway 22 and Oak Grove road with the intent to create a final resting place overlooking the farmlands of Polk county. Soon after, Restlawn Memory Gardens was established and people from the community started purchasing land in Salem's new cemetery. 
 
Through the years, many new gardens have been developed allowing the cemetery to grow with the needs of the growing community. A new indoor Mausoleum was added in the 1960's. Since the first mausoleum was constructed, several new wings have been added to meet the growing need of Polk county. Restlawn continues to be the only mausoleum in Polk County. As the cremation demands grew in the area, Restlawn developed cremation urn gardens, along with indoor and outdoor Niche options for the growing cremation market. 
 
In the mid 1980's, a new funeral home was added to the property. Restlawn Funeral Home remains West Salem's only Funeral Home and serves families from all over Marion and Polk and Yamhill counties. 
 
Through the years, many people have come and gone in the Salem area. In the midst of all of the change, the staff at Restlawn Memory Gardens and Restlawn Funeral Home are still committed to serving every family with dignity. Over the past 55 years, Restlawn has grown to develop 20 of our original 50 acres. We have plenty of land to meets the needs of a growing community. 
 
We are proud to have served thousands of of families over the past 55 years, and have committed to continue to serve our community.
 
This picture was taken in November of 1957. This was the first mausoleum constructed at Restlawn.
