I know cemetery's aren't all that exciting to some but I felt this one had enough history behind it to validate posting it. I have grown up in this area my whole life and was not even aware that there was a coloured cemetery around here. The cemetery is over 150 years old and contain's at least 1 veteran of the war of 1812 giving the site even more historic value. The cemetery has had many different names over the years and in 1975 the town of Fort Erie assumed responsibility for it.

timo explorer Pioneer cemeteries are full of amazing history, for those who take the time to read the stones and appreciate what these families went through so long ago. Every settlement and every ghost town has an old cemetery, sometimes this is all that remains today.

mobileworks Pioneer cemeteries have a lot of character and need to be documented before some headstones are unreadable. My elderly mother learned how to read from headstones, a long time ago, and used to love going with me to check them out. Good find.
