Union Cemetery has a new sign!

The original Grange sign from the 1960s at the Franklin Avenue entrance of Union Cemetery was weathered and fragile. The Wyckoff Historical Society recently replaced the old sign with one that is also hand-lettered, and includes the Grange logo. Click here for more Union Cemetery information.
If you ever visited Union Cemetery in Wyckoff to investigate the 18th and 19th century headstones, have you wondered who the people interred there were and what occupations they held when they lived in the Wyckoff area?

Our new audio tour, Headphones & Headstones will answer many of these questions.
