Also known as, "Werkley Cemetery".
Located on the south side of Eggert Rd, at the parking lot entrance to St. Bartholomew's Anglican Church.
St. John's Cemetery dates back to the mid-19th century. It was originally given to the membership of St. John's Evangelical congregation by Jacob Werkley around 1839 or 1840.
Though the cemetery association was not organized until 1850, it appears the earliest burial was in 1839. The cemetery association eventually ceased to operate as original settlers passed away. The cemetery became abandoned and neglected. The Town of Tonawanda took over and restored the cemetery with a rededication as an historic site on May 24, 1936.
