History of the Union Cemetery
The Union Cemetery Association according to cemetery records was created by a small group of individuals. These individuals met with interested citizens on December 18, 1889 in the home of John Lillibridge. They appointed a Board of Directors and on December 26 of 1889 they announced that the Hillside Coal and Iron Co would sell the ground that would become the Union Cemetery. The sale was completed on January 18 1890.

When entering the Union Cemetery from Academy St.  Beginning at a point to the far left near Main St. is located the old Callender Cemetery. The Callender Cemetery is approximately 1.3 acres. Thru the Depression years and into the late 50’s it fell into disrepair. Family’s of those interred there attempted to keep the cemetery up. Beginning at some time between 1965 and 1975 the Union Cemetery began to put this cemetery back into a condition that those interred there deserve; since then the Callender Cemetery has been maintained by the Union Cemetery and has become part of the Union Cemetery.

The Callender family was one of the Original family’s in Peckville. This cemetery contains ancestors of some of the earliest family’s in the Mid Valley region.
