Located at the north end of Seventh Street in Easton, PA, Easton Cemetery was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990. Easton Cemetery opened in 1849 but unlike many other historic cemeteries, gravesites are still available for burials.
Walking (or driving) through this historic site is like going back in time – rolling hills and shaded streets encourage a slower pace, providing a chance to view some fine examples of funerary art. The grave of George Taylor, signer of the Declaration of Independence, is marked by an obelisk topped with an eagle. A free, self-guided walking tour booklet is available on the porch of the Superintendent’s house.
