Pottstown Cemetery - Pottstown, Pennsylvania
371 N. Hanover Street
Pottstown, PA 19464
Pottstown Cemetery was established in 1854. The east side is the older section, and it looks full. The west side takes up a substantial amount of space across Hanover Street, behind the Apartment buildings. The cemetery offices are also located on that side.
This cemetery appears very well-maintained.
Their form 990 says their mission is to "operate and maintain a cemetery for the burial of members of the German and English Lutheran and German and English reformed congregations."
As of the end of 2015 they reported having $1.95 million worth of investments in publicly traded securities, $93,489 in non-interest bearing cash, plus $58,675 in savings and temporary cash investments.
It is important for the cemetery to have money set aside to pay for the upkeep of the cemetery after the last burial lots are sold and revenue begins to decline.
