Located in Franklin Township between McKnightstown and Cashtown, Flohr’s Lutheran Church is one of the earliest German Lutheran congregations in the area. With headstones dating to 1790, this Franklin Township cemetery contains roughly 3,000 known burials and countless unmarked graves. Join historian Timothy H. Smith as we walk through the historic cemetery and highlight the final resting places of some of western Adams County’s most prominent families. Parking is available in the Flohr’s Church lot.

Timothy H. Smith has been a Licensed Battlefield Guide at the Gettysburg National Military Park for over 25 years and is Historian and Collections Manager at the Adams County Historical Society. He is the author of ten books and numerous articles on the Gettysburg Campaign, the Civil War, and related local history topics. He is a historical consultant for the American Battlefield Trust and a frequent lecturer at Civil War Round Tables and Seminars, and appears regularly on the Pennsylvania Cable Network’s Battle Walks Series.
