Locust Hill Cemetery Restoration & Clean Up

Share:


Saturday May 8, 2021
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

About 60 Trentonians, Boy Scouts, community leaders and neighbors removed a literal mountain of debris from the historic Locust Hill Cemetery in Trenton on April 17th. Now the effort continues with a second stage of the project scheduled for Saturday, May 8, 2021 from 9 a.m. to noon. Established about 1850, Locust Hill is Trenton's largest existing African-American cemetery. It holds the remains of residents re-interred there from the East Hanover Street Burial Ground, dating back to 1779, as well as a number of Civil War veterans.

Please join us at the Cemetery, 73 Hart Ave., Trenton 08638 on Saturday, May 8, 2021 at 9 a.m. to begin the next phase of the restoration project. Volunteers are needed to clear areas believed to contain gravesites so that ground penetrating radar can be utilized. We will continue to transform the area into a greenway first designed for the City by the Olmstead firm in the early 1900's, now to be implemented as part of the Locust Hill Cemetery revitalization. For more information, please call Mike McCormick at (609) 208-9991.
