Visiting Mount Moriah Cemetery
The cemetery is open to the public and visitors are welcome. While there are no new burials taking place, friends and family of those buried still visit their loved ones. The gates are opened by volunteers. This means if it’s raining, snowing, or a holiday the gates may not be open! The Kingsessing Ave. gate is open Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday from around 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The Yeadon side gate is only open on weekends during the same hours.
There are two sides of the cemetery, bisected by Cobbs Creek Parkway. You cannot drive directly through from one side to the other.
For your safety and the integrity of the cemetery, do not climb, lean against, or otherwise touch the monuments. Due to their age and natural environment, the stones are fragile and can topple! Grave rubbings of any kind are prohibited.
10:30AM - 4:00PM
Both sides of the cemetery are open on weekends. The Philadelphia side is also open Friday and Monday. Weather dependent.
Vehicles may enter the cemetery grounds when the gates are open and visitors can park inside on the main roadways. Please pull to the side so other vehicles pay pass, but do not park on the grass. Please obey a speed limit of 15 mph.
There are bicycle racks near the entrances. Do not lock or chain bikes to trees, monuments, or fences.
The Yeadon side entrance is off of Cobbs Creek Parkway and does not have a street address. We recommend using these GPS coordinates to get to the entrance just off the roadway: 39.93306, -75.23813
You will pass over the Cobbs Creek Trail to enter, so be on the lookout for pedestrians. There is a small parking area to the left of the entrance.
There is fast moving traffic on Cobbs Creek Parkway, so please use caution. We recommend turning right when exiting.
The closest public restrooms are at McDonald’s at 60th and Woodland Ave.
