New Cathedral Cemetery, located on the western edge of Baltimore City, was founded in 1871, and combines three old cemeteries: St. Peterís Kirkyard, opened in 1770, the Cathedral Cemetery (1816), and St. Patrick's cemetery (1936). The headstones and markers from all three old cemeteries were moved from their original locations within the city proper and installed at New Cathedral Cemetery over the course of nearly three centuries. Many of these headstones are from the 1800s, and made of marble that is now severely weathered. Although abused by the environment, there is much beauty to be found in the old headstones and statues, and the magnificent view of Baltimore City one witnesses from the Cemetery's grounds.
