1. Old Berlin Cemetery. The cemetery property was transferred to the Bethany Lutheran Church when it incorporated in 1892. Anticipating that the church would be built on cemetery property, it became known as the Old Lutheran Cemetery. However, the church decided to build several blocks away, closer to the center of town.

2. Conservation Treatment Report: Old Berlin Cemetery. In 2015, the City of Brunswick, MD contracted with Wellman Conservation LLC to prepare an assessment and treatment proposal for the Old Berlin Cemetery, including: (1) Re-standing leaning or fallen gravestones that were deemed to be in their original locations, (2) Re-locating fallen and dislocated gravestones to their likely original locations based on historical research and matching with base elements still in situ, and (3) Creating a “memorial plot” where “orphaned” stones could be set up as a memorial to the unknown burials throughout the cemetery.
