The Monongahela Cemetery Chapel Project - Bridges the Past with the Present and the Future

Even if we don't know much about the history of the Chapel, it's hard to miss the beauty as we enter a most scenic and well-designed cemetery.. Many have attended a service in the non-denominational and non-sectarian Monongahela Cemetery Chapel which is available to everyone providing comfort in a time of need.

The Chapel has always been there for us over the years, undergoing regular maintenance and upkeep. But as with any historic structure, eventually an investment must be made to keep the treasure viable. Therefore, the Board of Directors is embarking on a fundraising campaign that will maintain the historic aspects of the Monongahela Cemetery Chapel, while returning it to its original beauty and ensuring that the Chapel will be here for future generations.
