Church Yard

The Gloria Dei Cemetery has been in continuous use since the early 1700’s and is one of the oldest burial grounds in Philadelphia. We seek to restore the church yard to an earlier point in history, increasing the historical accuracy of the environment, repair and preserve grave stones that have decayed due to extreme age, the ravages of an urban environment, and some very old damage caused by vandalism.
