Where the Ancestors Slumber

Interesting presentation about historic African American cemeteries coming up on the 21st at 1PM at Stenton, 4601 N 18th Street.

Joe Menkevich, local historical researcher, has been doing research on the historic cemetery at Wilmot Park (Meadow Street across from 2nd Baptist) which is now under the playground there and will attend the meeting.  This cemetery was in use at least through the early 20th century.  It should be on the historic register.  Follow this link to more information about the meeting.
