LAUREL HILL

Dorantown Road, Covington Township,

Daleville, Lackawanna County, PA

 

 

The land now known as “Laurel Hill Cemetery” was donated by Reverend Henry F. Wardell of Daleville.  The first stone to be seen on the “hill” was that of Joshua “Dot” Doran, who died in the year 1908.  This “hill” was known to many as “Mt. Horeb” and had once been the site of school picnics.  The children attending the one room school house, where the Township Garage is now, used to climb the hill along with their teacher and enjoy the great outdoors, excerpt of course, when the weather was not permissible.  The Township Garage is situated across from the Daleville United Methodist Church.
