New map unearths dozens of forgotten burial grounds across Philly

In the summer of 1851, it was reported that a Mr. Finley had purchased a plot of land on the corner of 12th and Carpenter streets in Philadelphia, to build on it…

    New map unearths dozens of forgotten burial grounds across Philly
    Historians say cemeteries are forgotten for all sorts of reasons: congregations move away or thin out, grave relocations may be incomplete, members who knew of the burial grounds themselves die. "In some cases, there are hundreds of individuals built on layers on top of the other, and in some cases, people doing the relocation think they have everybody, but they don't," said Mooney.

The Lillingtons at The Boot & Saddle on 04/25/2018 08:00 PM EDT

    The Lillingtons - Tickets - The Boot & Saddle - Philadelphia, PA - April 25th, 2018
    It's been over a decade since The Lillingtons released a full-length album-and an anomaly of a record at that. 2006's The Too Late Show proved The Lillingtons were just as powerful as they were in their initial run, even if the band wasn't inclined to hop back in the van and be a full-time concern.
