Center Street Cemetery has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997 by the United States Department of the Interior.
The Civil War Circle is located in the back of the cemetery by the Prince St. wall. This is dedicated to the memory of nineteen soldiers who gave their lives during the Civil War between 1862 and 1865.
On May 4th, 1911, the Center Street Cemetery Association was established “To care for, maintain and beautify the Center Street Cemetery.” The rewards of preserving and restoring this historic cemetery are many: personal, educational, historical, and patriotic, for the Center Street Cemetery spans the centuries, from the 17th century into the distant future. We urge you to consider participating in this dedicated endeavor by joining the Center Street Cemetery Association.
