Thousands have helped bring Pennsylvania's largest cemetery back from overgrown abandonment since the Friends of Mount Moriah Cemetery, Inc. began coordinating restoration efforts in 2011. Come out and meet your co-workers! Meet that guy you saw with the chainsaw! What's his deal? Talk with the gal on the riding mower! Meet members of the Friends and the Mount Moriah Preservation Corporation.We all have something in common: the desire to honor and respect those who came before us.
|Friends and Families Festival 2013|
If you have not been to Mount Moriah for a few months (or more), you will be surprised at how much ground our volunteers have taken back from Mother Nature! entire sections that were overgrown this past spring are now cleared of trees and the grass is mowed! Fall is also a fine opportunity to see and photograph the hidden monuments and other memorials as the foliage begins to disappear. Enjoy the natural setting, see the wildlife and exotic flowers and trees, appreciate the history. Many areas are still overgrown, but soon, you will be able to see through the forest. Oh, and best of all - the deer ticks are gone!
