Devoted to the Preservation of the Historic Mount Moriah Cemetery
Since its establishment in 1855, the rolling landscape of Mount Moriah Cemetery has been an inclusive final resting place for Philadelphia’s diverse population, welcoming of all races and incomes, and adapting to changing burial needs of its diverse communities, including incorporating US military lots, Muslim burials, and communal plots.
After the cemetery was abandoned by its owners, The Friends of Mount Moriah, Inc. was formed. The group has been working diligently since 2011 to restore this beautiful green space. The mission is to make the grounds accessible for families to safely visit their loved ones while creating a place for people to connect with nature, take a walk, ride bikes, bird watch, and find serenity in the middle of a densely urban environment.
