Our most sincere thanks to Goldman Sachs for your outstanding support of the Historic Jersey City & Harsimus Cemetery Restoration Project.

The team did a fantastic job! Uncovering the beautifully preserved head stone of the two young children from 1853 was monumental for all of us, and the tremendous progress we made of uncovering the 200 year old path in just one day was simply amazing.


Volunteers are needed to restore our National Treasure!
We need your help with the cemetery grounds and caretaker house maintenance and repairs, assisting visitors, database entry of the historic cemetery records, and exciting fundraising activities. With your help, our vision includes the development of a Historic Museum & Learning Center to provide historical education, and increase public knowledge and appreciation of the Cemetery's historical significance and natural beauty.
