Surrounded by its hewn rail fence and heavily-wooded Fox Chapel terrain, sits Strohm Cemetery. Small, forgotten, and mysteriously hidden from modern society. Remnants of engraved headstones have weathered so badly that few identifiable ones remain. This property was gifted to the Fox Chapel Land Conservation Trust many years ago for the purpose of keeping it undeveloped. According to the past-president of the Trust, Mr. Jerry Cecil of Fox Chapel, once a year the Trust trys to find volunteers to clean up debris and repair any damaged/fallen stones. The Trust has no source of funding and therefore it cannot employe any maintenance staff. Unfortunately there were no records conveyed at the time of "gifting" so the majority of those interred will remain anonymous forever. Access can only be gained from the dead-end cul-de-sac off Woodland Farms Road. Visitors must climb up through a wooded and barely-visible trail for a few moments before catching a glimpse of the rail fencing defining the perimeter of the grounds. There are at least 60 weathered and unidentifiable headstones. Remnants of another 60 were partially readable, although some only carried initials. The earliest burial, based on these records is 1824, and the last burial took place in 1923. (Source: by Norman J. Meinert, May 2000).
