Green Hill Mausoleum: first “Be A Tree” site in Virginia

In Buena Vista, the Green Hill Mausoleum, owned by Evergreen Memorial, is the very first site in Virginia where someone is becoming a tree. Ellen Rae Houston was not from Buena Vista, and she had no connections with the area. However, on April 28th, 2018, her ashes were planted on a beautiful slope in front of the mausoleum. Houston’s family had found Green Hill online and loved the remarkable view of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
