OLD MORAVIAN

Route 191, Dreher Township,

Newfoundland, Wayne County, PA

 

 

This cemetery was established by a small group of immigrants from Gondelsheim, Germany who settled along the Newfoundland Road near the Wallenpaupack Creek around 1830, forming the village of Newfoundland.  In 1837, the Moravian Congregation was organized they built the first church in the community known as the ‘Hoffenstal’ or the Hopedale Moravian Church.  The cemetery was located on church land near the bank of a small creek.  The original cemetery was enclosed by a stone wall.  Because of the high water table near the creek, graves were relatively shallow.  Stones were placed on top of the caskets for added weight so that they didn’t rise during frequent spring floods.

Burials in the cemetery were made according to the beliefs and funeral practices of the early Hopedale Church.  Men and women were buried chronologically, in the order in which they passed.  There are no fancy headstones, monuments or statues to distinguish one person from another.  Flat grave markers hugged the ground because Moravians believed that everyone is equal in death.

 

The cemetery has sustained damage over the years from flooding and this may be one reason the Church established a new cemetery on higher ground – known as the Hopedale (Moravian) Cemetery.
