Park Rambles - Indiana County Parks & Trails

Digging Our Past

Over the years students from IUP have conducted various archeological digs at Memorial Park to help locate grave sites and markers in the park. During this dig two previously unknown tombstones were uncovered.

This portion of the park was once a German Lutheran Cemetery and both tombstones discovered in this dig had writing in German. Information on the tombstones was recorded but because of the condition of the headstones they could not erected and instead were left in place.
