Join us at 6:30PM on Tuesday, August 6th for a special program at the Lower Marsh Creek Presbyterian Cemetery

Located on a bluff overlooking the banks of Marsh Creek, the Lower March Creek Presbyterian Church Cemetery is one of the most tranquil and beautiful sites in Adams County. Believed to be the site of the original Lower Marsh Creek Presbyterian Church dating to the 1740s, the cemetery is one of the earliest in the county. Today the historic section of the cemetery contains 676 known burials, with the first dating to 1749. Join historian Timothy H. Smith of the Adams County Historical Society as we visit the site and discuss the stories of some of our earliest Scots-Irish settlers.


The cemetery is located at 375 Byers Lane, near where the road ends. Parking is limited, so please carpool if possible. The tour will begin at 6:30 PM. Some walking on uneven ground is required.
