Rose Hill Cemetery

Located at 535 Fayette St., about ¾ mile from the Church, Rose Hill is both the Parish cemetery and resting place of most of Cumberland’s historic personages.

Rose Hill was given to Emmanuel by the family of Captain David Lynn, who was given the land in payment for services during the Revolution by the Federal Government. At the time, in the late 1840s, the old cemetery of Fort Cumberland was being removed to make way for a railway cut, and those who were interred there had to be relocated. The graves of Thomas Beall of Samuel (the founder of the City of Cumberland), local Revolutionary War heroes Col. Lamar and Capt. Lynn are now at Rose Hill. So too are those of Lloyd Lowndes, the only person from Cumberland to have served as Governor of Maryland, and Emmanuel’s prominent sexton, Samuel Denson.

It is still possible to purchase columbarium niches at Rose Hill. For information, please call the Caretaker at 301-722-5480, or the Church at 301-777-3364, or contact us by e-mail at [email protected]
