Established in 1847, Montgomery Cemetery was the first public, non-sectarian burial grounds in Montgomery County. Ideally located on sloped land along the Schuylkill River just outside Norristown, and designed in a formal Rural Landscape style, it provided a park-like setting for families to visit their relatives, view the outdoor symbolic sculpture on monuments, and walk the grounds. The cemetery is no longer an active burial ground, but is preserved as a link to the past.

The entrance to Montgomery Cemetery is at the end of Hartranft Avenue, off of West Main Street, Norristown.

Address: 1 Hartranft Avenue, Norristown, PA 19401

The main entrance gate is locked to help prevent vandalism, but will be open during this event for admission and parking.
