History and Genealogy
Hopewell Cemetery is historically significant, serving as the burial location of many of the City’s first settlers. Among those who arrived in Montgomery in 1795, Cornelius Snyder, Jacob Roosa, and Nathaniel Terwilliger are buried here, as well as five Revolutionary War veterans and over fifty Civil War veterans.
The cemetery was created by the early settlers in the area as a place of respect, a means of honoring their triumphs and perpetuating the memory of loved ones. The oldest section of the cemetery is known as the “Pioneer Section” which was officially preserved as a Montgomery Landmark in 1978.
