History

The first town cemetery known as the "Old Ninth Street Cemetery", was established in the 1770s, and was located at the corner of what is Ninth and Locust Streets today. It became so crowded over the years that the newer site called the McKeesport & Versailles Cemetery was established in 1856 and dedicated Nov 06, 1856. The remains from the "Old Ninth Street Cemetery" were transfered to the McKeesport & Versailles Cemetery.

Additional land purchased has increased the size of this cemetery to about 88 acres, extending from Fifth Avenue to Versailles Avenue. The city of McKeesport has grown around the cemetery so that it is now situated in the center of town. Interments totaled over 42,000 at the end of 2002. The McKeesport and Versailles Cemetery is a non-profit perpetual care cemetery owned by the lot owners.
