Established in 1849, Easton Cemetery is the earliest and best surviving example of a Romantic style park-like cemetery within the Lehigh Valley region. The original 1849 section is the work of landscape architect and civil engineer James Charles Sidney. Throughout the cemetery grounds are the resting places of many of the early influential families of the Easton area as well as the gravesites of a number of famous individuals associated with important local, state, and national events. The Easton Cemetery has developed a significant local and regional presence not only due to the people buried within its confines, but also because of its well preserved picturesque setting and Romantic style 19th century landscaping.
Erected by National Park Service, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and Easton Cemetery.
