Monongahela cemetery 150 years worth of history


Monongahela Cemetery is a historic cemetery in Monongahela City, Pennsylvania, established in 1863. Landscape architects Hare & Hare designed a portion of the property.

The cemetery was listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 2001.

The cemetery now occupies 160 acres, but only about 100 acres are included in the National Register listing. John Chislett designed the original 32 acre plot in the rural cemetery tradition. About 60 acres were added in 1915 and designed in the lawn park style by Hare & Hare. The five acre St. Mary's Cemetery was opened c. 1900 and incorporated into the 1915 expansion.
