The Harmonists did not believe in memorializing members and did not use tombstone. The cemetery appears to be an empty field save for a few small tombstones that belonged to a few paid workers at Old Economy Village and married members of the Harmonist society.

These historical markers commemorate just some of the Black History milestones that are honored across Pennsylvania.

Initially, Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission's predecessor, the Pennsylvania Historical Commission, erected bronze plaques on boulders or stone monuments. When the Pennsylvania State Archives, The State Museum of Pennsylvania and the PHC combined in 1945 to form the PHMC, the modern Marker Program was born. Can you name all the makers in your neck of the woods? http://pahistoricpreservation.com/nominating-historical-markers/
