|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This cemetery is located at the foothills of the Laurel Mountains in western Pennsylvania. Enclosed by two iron gates with an inscription stone reading "R.K. POLSKI CMENTARZ PRZEMIENIENIA PANSKIEGO" on the right gate post and an inscription stone reading "R.C. POLISH CEMETERY OF THE TRANSFIGURATION" on the left gate post. Many immigrants from Poland and Czechoslovkia are interred here. At the turn of the 20th century, the coal mining industry was thriving in this area and the immigrants settled in communities surrounding Mt. Pleasant. The older section includes old tombstones worn and weathered, with inscriptions indigenous to their native tongue i.e. matka, ojciec, corka , syn and S.P. - in Holy Rememberance.
