Newcastle Cemetery

A message from the Newcastle Historical Society

Join members of the Newcastle Historical Society in helping to clean up and aid in the restoration of the Newcastle Pioneer Cemetery. For years, Mother Nature has been reclaiming space within the confines of the cemetery boundary that lies beyond where most of the gravesites are located. It is believed that the periphery of the cemetery was where Chinese immigrant miners and mine workers of color were interred. The intent of the historical group is to restore the entire site to its intended beauty. 

WHEN

OCTOBER 30TH from 10:00 A.M. TO 2:00 P.M.

WHERE

Bring your wheelbarrows and long-handled pruner. Help transport vegetation that has already been cleared and piled to where it can be accessed by City of Newcastle workers for permanent removal. 

We'll provide a festive atmosphere, hot cider and cookies, and trick-or-treat candy snacks for the children. 

High school-age workers earn community service hours toward graduation requirements.

Please bring your appropriate face covering. Although we will be working outside, you may wish to be double-protected.
