Monument Cemetery Relocation to Lawnview Cemetery in Rockledge, Montgomery, Pennsylvania

Monument Cemetery held over 28,000 graves when the land was purchased by Temple University to create a parking lot and athletic fields. While many graves were identified and relocated intact, including some of the Brutsches and Lehmans, the remains of over 20,000 people were exhumed and buried anonymously in a mass grave at Lawnview Cemetery. Most of the headstones from Monument Cemetery were dumped as riprap for the Betsy Ross Bridge over the Delaware River, many of which can be still seen today at low tide.
