Harrisburg Cemetery

Chartered in 1845, here is established Harrisburg's oldest and largest Cemetery, with period Carpenter Gothic-styled caretaker's house, as the final resting place of many noted individuals of national, state and local importance. Soldiers from all American Wars, including the Revolutionary War (reinterred) and Civil War, as well as Confederate prisoners from the Battle of Gettysburg who died in Harrisburg hospitals, are reposed here. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the 30-acre Harrisburg Cemetery is one of the few cemeteries in Pennsylvania to hold such a distinction.
