About:

Christ Episcopal Church Yard in the Old City section of Philadelphia is the original burial ground of the church. Construction of the church began around 1727, so the graves here are old. 

You can see from the photos that this is not a typical cemetery.

The main cemetery is at 5th and Arch Streets.

Interestingly, this church was the tallest structure in North America between 1754 and 1810 (196 foot tall steeple).
