Virtual Lecture Planned April 21 About Newton Union Burial Ground
The Historical Society of Haddonfield invites you to join us on April 21 at 7 pm for a virtual lecture, “Newton Union Burial Ground,” presented by Bob Shinn and Shawn Colborn.
Bob and Shawn will be discussing the history of the Newton Union Burial Ground in the West Collingswood section of Haddon Township, including its historical connections to Haddonfield. Now listed on the New Jersey Register of Historical Places, the burial ground was first laid out in 1682 and includes the graves of early Quaker settlers. James Sloan established a companion burial ground in 1790. Among other distinctions, the site includes more graves of veterans of the American Revolution than any other burial site in Southern New Jersey.
We hope you’ll join us on April 21 at 7 pm. The program will be shared via Zoom.
The event is free, though donations are always welcome. You can register for the free Zoom event by clicking here, and we will send out the link and brief instructions by the day of the event.
