About:

St. Michael’s Church in the West Kensington section of Philadelphia is where the city’s first catholic cemetery was established. Today, that cemetery is not well maintained and access is restricted.

On a side note, the original church was burned down by rioters in 1844. The church that stands here is the replacement.

The neighborhood is also changing. Fancy, new residential construction is right across the street from this walled-in cemetery.

 Across the street: new residential construction. St. Michael's Cemetery - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
