Long Description:
This cemetery was considered to be where Allentown's power players of the 1800's and early 1900's were buried. As Obelisks are perhaps the second most expensive burial monument (after mausoleums), old money was put to rest here. I am including this "forest of obelisks" as there were almost too many to waymark individually. I will include photos of some of the more interesting obelisks from this forest. The coordinates are where the main waymark picture was taken.
