Please consider volunteering with the Friends of St. Vincent Cemetery.  On February 24th help us locate and stake out the site of the buried St. Vincent Cemetery grave stones in Herring Run Park.  Once we learn the size of the area where the grave stones are buried, we can begin planning how to return the grave stones to St. Vincent Cemetery.


Contact Stephanie Town for more information on volunteering.

St. Vincent Cemetery consists of five acres, and it is located within the confines of the Clifton Park Golf Course in Baltimore, Maryland. To the casual observer, it just looks like open space park land, but closer observation reveals four clusters of tomb stones.
   

 

How did it get this way? There was a long history of vandalism to the point the city of Baltimore recommended bulldozing the tombstones, many under layers of soil.  It remained that way for over 30 years until a small group of descendants found each other and formed the Friends of St. Vincent Cemetery (FOSVC). 

  

The mission of the FOSVC is to develop St. Vincent Cemetery into a memorial park that will complement Clifton Park with a monument dedicated to all those buried in the cemetery.
