Ellsworth Cemetery, which has seen hard times over the years, was re-dedicated with a Memorial Day Weekend ceremony on Saturday, May 26, 2018.
The cemetery was created December 21, 1876 by six Black Union Army veterans to provide a place to bury African-Americans — who were not allowed in the city’s cemeteries at the time. The Cemetery is located on Leidy Road behind the Crossroads Community Church in Westminster.
