Jul 02, 2011

For many years, GSP has provided transcriptions of the Mount Moriah Cemetery records on our website. We ask that you join the Friends of Mount Moriah Cemetery in protecting the neglected 380-acre burial ground located in SW Philadelphia.

The citizens' group is partnering with several organizations--including GSP, the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia, Preservation Pennsylvania & the National Trust for Historic Preservation--to save the hallowed site. An important hearing regarding the cemetery is scheduled for June 7th at Philadelphia City Hall at 9:00 a.m. More information about Friends of Mount Moriah Cemetery can be found here, and more updates will be sent as we receive them.
