About

The history of Unity Cemetery and Unity Chapel began nearly
two and a half centuries ago.

Today, the beautiful building called simply Unity Chapel—along with the quiet and pristine cemetery surrounding it—stands as a lasting legacy, reflecting the faith and dedication of those who have come to worship here. Many have taken time after the services to read the items of history recorded on the many plaques about the sanctuary. The courageous pioneers who worshiped in a simple log church on this wooded hilltop have inspired the generations who have followed them. Courage, faith, and determination; the love of God and country and community; respect for their heritage and hope for the future—these were the principles that guided the founders of Unity more than two centuries ago. Thanks to the efforts of the Unity Cemetery Association, the Unity Chapel Committee, and the many members and friends of the Latrobe Presbyterian Church who continue to support the Unity Chapel Endowment Fund, we are able to share in and continue that spirit today.

Celebrating a Legacy

To commemorate the 250th anniversary of the historic Unity Cemetery and Chapel, there will be a series of events that all are invited to attend. From historical reenactments to family picnics, there are truly ways for all to join us in celebrating.
