Welty Church of the Brethren-Smithsburg

This cemetery sits behind the church.  It is beautifully maintained.  For information on the church, click here.

It is believed that John Welty was the first adult buried in the cemetery. The stone wall bordering the cemetery was built in 1921‐22 of native sandstone.

We visited the cemetery in June 2015.  Click here for the photos taken during that visit.
