Horner’s Cemetery Historical Society, organizer of the recent Craig’s Scotch-Irish Settlement 290th anniversary festival, wishes to thank those who helped make the event a success. To those who attended, thanks are offered for stopping by and taking a tour of Horner’s Cemetery.

The cemetery is the oldest in Northampton County. The historical society has raised funds for stainless-steel name tags for the early-1700s tombstones that cannot be read. Perpetual care for this pre-Revolutionary War cemetery ran out many years ago. The grounds are cared for by a few members of the community.

If you wish to contribute to the fund for the name tags, please make a check payable to Horner’s Cemetery Historical Society and send to 5800 Nor-Bath Blvd., Bath, 18014.

Saturday morning tours of Horner’s Cemetery will continue until the end of October.

For cost, reservations or other information, call Chuck Frantz at 610-262-7961, ext. 306.
