     DIRECTIONS TO CEMETERY:  Cemetery is located one block north of the "Diamond" on Market Street.  Bounded by Market Street, St. Clair Street, Church Street, and an alley.  It adjoins the Methodist and Presbyterian Churches.

     Taken from the Westmoreland County Historical Society Cemetery Index: "When John Ramsey laid out the town of Ligonier in 1817 he set aside a plot of land for a "Church and Academy".  The first Presbyterian Church was erected there about 1820.  Burial were made in the adjoining cemetery as early as 1810.  The cemetery served the community until 1890 when the Borough Council prohibited further interments.  When the present Presbyterian Church was built around the turn of the twentieth century the bodies were removed and reinterred in Ligonier Valley Cemetery.
