The cemetery of the Lancaster Moravian Church was located on this site from 1742 until 1917.

During 1917 the graves were removed and interred in Green Wood Cemetery and this portion of land became the site of the Lancaster Post Office.

This marker was erected in loving memory of these original Lancaster Moravians by the Congregation of the Lancaster Moravian Church with the assistance of the Conestoga Valley Association and the Louise Steinman Von Hess Foundation.
