By 1746 this graveyard was established in association with the former site of the Lancaster Moravian Church at the southwest corner of West Orange and Market Streets (also called St. Andrew's Moravian Church). In 1916/1917 the graveyard was removed and remains were placed in Greenwood Cemetery. A memorial monument was erected at the cemetery's former location. Today the site is occupied by a Us. Post Office.
