Take Rt. 11 north out of Danville towards Bloomsburg, PA. as you leave Danville, the Senior High School is on your right. At red light by the high school, turn right onto State Hospital Drive. Go approximately 200 yards, Episcopal Cemetery is on your right.

Old Jewish Cemetery is on west end of Episcopal Cemetery, surrounded by a galvanized cyclone fence. Just past Episcopal cemetery is Fairview Cemetery on the right. There are several other cemeteries in this area.

This cemetery was originally started about 1850 and is still active today. The official name of the cemetery is "Episcopal Cemetery of Danville, PA." It is unique in that it is the only one there "surrounded by a black wrought iron picket fence."

A Maintenance Trust Fund is handled by FNB Bank, N.A. (Division of Fulton Financial) with adequate funding for generations. The cemetery is owned and well maintained by Christ Memorial Church, and in excellent condition. It operates in cooperation with the Trust Officer of the Bank.

This transcription is up to date as of 27 Aug 2002. The transcription was made by a physical survey of the cemetery and comparing to Church records and two previous surveys. Original transcription was by Ann Thomas, then Father James Fetterman and again in 2001 by myself.
