Photo of Lawnview Cemetery
Odd Fellows Cemetery founded in 1849. By the 1940's the cemetery has been vastly neglected having been degraded to an inofficial trashdump for the people residing in the surrounding neighborhood. In the 1950's the City of Philadelphia acquired the property, together with neighboring American Mechanics Cemetery and the bodies [supposedly] removed to other cemeteries. In 1999, upon demolition of the Rosen Housing Complex that had been erected on the site, many caskets and human remains were uncovered.
