The Edison Environmental Commission and Clean Communities Program needs volunteers to clean-up and beautify the historic Piscatawaytown Burial Ground at St. James Episcopal Church on Woodbridge Avenue.

The community cleanup – on Saturday, Oct. 28 – runs from 9–noon at the historic cemetery off Woodbridge Avenue. Volunteers will be raking, cleaning up burial plots, and mulching gardens and flowerbeds.

The town’s Environmental Commission and Clean Communities program will supply volunteers with gloves and trash bags. Organizers are seeking 50 or more volunteers to help at the site.

The Piscatawaytown Burial Grounds – where graves date to 1693 – was the site of militia drills in the 1700s. It is the final resting place for many Revolutionary War soldiers; for long-time Edison families, including several former mayors; and it is the 1731 burial plot of an accused witch whose ghost supposedly haunts the property.

For more information about this clean up project, call (732) 993-8503 or visit www.edisonnj.org.
