ORIGINALLY KNOWN AS THE LOWER BURIAL GROUND, the cemetery was a secular burial ground for residents of lower Germantown and contains the graves of several prominent Philadelphians, as well as those of 41 Revolutionary War soldiers, and veterans of subsequent conflicts, including the War of 1812 and the Civil War.

The cemetery is a beautiful green oasis within an urban neighborhood.
