Nestled in the golf course in the middle of Clifton Park in Baltimore, is a small five acre cemetery. To the casual observer, it just looks like open space park land, but closer observation reveals four clusters of tombstones.   

 

How did it get this way? There was a long history of desecrations to the point the city of Baltimore recommended bulldozing the tombstones, many under layers of soil.  It remained that way for almost 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. 

 

Research is being conducted on those buried there and cataloging has begun of the tombstones which remain.  This website is dedicated to the memory of those buried in St. Vincent Cemetery.  Tab through our website to reveal the most updated list of names of internments, articles about the desecrations,  maps, historical documents and personal stories.

You can also find information on how to get involved in restoring order and dignity to the cemetery as well as how to donate to the continuing rescue work.
