The History of Mt. Calvary 

Founded in the 1850's. Mt. Calvary actually began along a wagon trail — a place of reverence where settlers buried loved ones lost along the way. Today Mt. Calvary is not only the community's largest Catholic cemetery, it is also one of the oldest Catholic cemeteries in Cedar Rapids.
