Welcome to Bayside Cemetery, Potsdam, NY

Here you will find information concerning our history, burial and cremains sites and prices, special events, a searchable database of burials to locate individuals and families, visiting opportunties, images and maps of the cemetery, and more.

Bayside is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year. It has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places for its architectural and historical significance. 

Our 42 acres of developed burial grounds are open to visitors during the day. Since its creation, Bayside has served our region as a parklike setting to commune with Nature and the memories of those who have gone before us. 

We welcome inquiries about the purchase of burial plots from all persons.

We also welcome donations of time and money from the community to help maintain the beautiful grounds.

Spring Cleaning

For the annual village clean-up day, Clarkson University's hockey, volleyball, and swim teams volunteered enthusiastically to pick up winter blow-down and rake up the rest of the fall's leaves. Grounds should be looking swell for Memorial Day. Thanks, athletes!
