The Derry Area Historical Society has joined forces with the historic Old Salem Church in an effort to preserve, restore, and renew the memorials of our ancestors who built this great nation.
The cemetery at Old Salem is one of the earliest in Southwestern Pennsylvania and contains the earthly remains for our region’s Founding Fathers, thirty of whom served in the American Revolution. Their combined sacrifices bestowed the blessings of liberty upon us all. We owe it to their memory to honor our first citizens for future generations yet unborn.
Almost all of the 30 Revolutionary War Veterans stones at historic Old Salem are in dire need of repair, restoration, & replacement.
Show YOUR support for our nation’s first veterans and lend a hand by Adopting a Revolutionary Hero!
Whether you are part of a school group, church group, athletic club, or just someone concerned about the preservation of our heritage for future generations, you CAN make a difference!
