Visitation Day will be Sunday October 25th at 3pm. The event will go on and We will be practicing social distancing. Come learn about the latest happenings and meet out guest from the past.
The Sykesville Gatehouse Museum is holding a series of Porch Talks. Take a quick look at the Event Calendar and you will see that many of those buried in the HTC are linked to the rich history of Sykesville.
This years Guest from the Past was Samuel Davidson Hall portrayed by Ron Kuehne. Ron did an excellent job of connecting us to the life of Samuel Davidson Hall and sharing his relationship to Holy Trinity.
Take a look at the HTC Fall 2018 Newsletter to learn about the latest developments of the cemetery. You can also take a look at the will of George Holmes, the nephew of Susanna Warfield who lived with her at Groveland.
We said goodbye to the grand old oak which had grown tall over many years at the HTC. It’s likely this tree was there at the cemeteries inception and could tell many stories. Rot in the crotch of the tree, risk of it falling, and the damage this would cause led to the decision to have it removed. Good by old friend. We will miss you. Have a look at photos of the event.
The 2018 Spring Cleanup Day is in the books. We would like to thank everyone who came out to help! Without you the cemetery would “go underground” Check out the photos.
