Bio

The Homestead Cemetery was first incorporated in 1886 to serve the burgeoning community growing in the Monongahela Valley. It has not faltered in its duty of honor and remembrance to the community as it has witnessed dramatic change over the last century and beyond. The members of our community who rest peacefully within its grounds have shaped the neighboring boroughs in events from the Homestead Steel Strike, the Great Depression, and the Second World War. The cemetery has also witnessed the dramatic demographic changes of the country over the past hundred years, and, as such, men and women who fought for racial and social justice from the Negro League in baseball to the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s are remembered as integral parts of our region.
