graveyard was started in the 1730s, and had become filled by
the 1840s. Trinity Lutheran Church started Woodward Hill
Cemetery between 1849 and 1852, and closed the church
graveyard to further burials in 1857. The front part of the
graveyard was removed in 1876 to make way for a chapel built
on South Duke Street. These stones and remains were moved to
Woodward Hill Cemetery. In 1949 the remainder of the
graveyard was removed to construct a parish house. Some
gravestones were deposited at the Pennsylvania Farm Museum.
A memorial wall, including some older gravestones, marks the
site of the cemetery.
