The Flushing Cemetery is embellished and blessed with a number of historical points that occurred prior to its establishment. In the year 1789 (64 years before the cemetery was founded), George Washington had crossed the East River on a personal mission aboard his barge. Washington, like other noted land-owners journeyed to Flushing: the reason for this was because of how this community had become a center of scientific horticulture before Washington became a man of destiny. Within the Flushing Cemetery, its floral and arboreal beauty have become a memorial to Flushing’s status as a center of horticulture to this day.
