Program: Prospect Hill Cemetery is located at 700 North George Street  near historic downtown York, PA.  It is comprised of 170 acres with over 60 acres of property still to be developed.   

Founded in 1849,  Prospect Hill  is much more than a cemetery, it is a place of beauty and special remembrance for our community.   Historically it is a protected and honored final resting place of American patriots including Philip Livingston, a signer of the Declaration of Independence.   

Flag displays and memorials placed in the cemetery landscape honor those who have served our nation.  The Court Of Valor monument  is a granite structure standing 13' tall and 11" wide.   A piece of steel from the World Trade Center weighing 3,000 pounds  and measuring 9' 11"  in length rests perfectly at the top of the monument..  Names of those who have been awarded valor medals are inscribed into the monument at no cost.    The Fallen Heroes Memorial encases a state-of-the-art 42" digital monitor that allows visitors to view information about our Fallen Heroes.  It is the hope of the cemetery that visitors will begin to capture a sense of the sacrifice families have made and to be an effective way to honor and remember. 

Find out how the proprietor and staff get creative in order to maintain and care for 170 acres of unique property on a shoestring budget.   

An escorted tour of the grounds is available.    An open air tram is provided for the tour, you may want to bring a jacket. TOUR IS LIMITED TO 24 PARTICIPANTS. Please email Lauren Leipziger at lleipzig@paturnpike.com to be added to the tour roster.
