|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Harmony Cemetery is located on approximately 10 acres and was established to provide a modern alternative to the traditional Colonial style Union Cemetery. A private entity, Harmony Cemetery was laid out in concentric circles surrounding a central watchtower. Its first recorded burial was 1831, but the cemetery was not incorporated until 1845. After 1845, burial in Harmony Cemetery increased dramatically (particularly in the 1840s, 1850s and 1860s), reducing the demand on Union Cemetery.
