Richmond County Memorial Park was founded on June 1, 1951 by Joseph L. Sibley. This was Richmond County’s first perpetual care cemetery that offered families assurance of continuing care of roads and grounds. The beautiful 28-acre cemetery is located on US 74 east between Rockingham and Hamlet. The original office was located in the Steel building in downtown Rockingham. After two years, the office was moved to the Sibley’s Cannon towel store on US 1 north. Mr. Sibley felt that it would be better to have an office on the grounds. The office was constructed and completed in 1960 and still remains in the same building to this day.
