Join us for a tour of the historic Cumberland Cemetery!
Cumberland Cemetery was established in May 1885 after John Tyler and other community members bought a 17-acre parcel of land at auction and then transferred the land to the Cumberland Cemetery Company for $1.00. Abutting the Middletown Quaker Meeting House and adjacent to William Penn’s original land grant to Thomas Minshall, the Cumberland Cemetery memorializes many local notables, including members of the Tyler and Painter families. Join us as we learn the cemetery’s history and decipher the epitaphs and symbolism on Minshall and Jacob Painter’s grave markers.
This tour will meet at Cumberland Cemetery, 447 N. Middletown Road, Media, PA 19063. Please park on the inner side of the u-shaped gravel drive (on the same side as the house). You will meet your tour guide at the house near Middletown Road. We will be walking on grass and gravel. Closed-toed walking shoes are recommended.
