The Union Cemetery
The Union Cemetery Association of Hackettstown was established in 1857 for the purpose of organizing a rural cemetery association. In 1859, the nine Trustees met to discuss the parcel of land along the Musconetcong River offered by Isaac W. and David E. Crane for use as the cemetery. An additional strip of land fifty feet wide, to be used as the entrance to the cemetery, was negotiated with William Rea, M.D.

The first burials in Union Cemetery included Robertson D. Ayers, James Drake, Phebe Sutton, Julia Ann Clawson, Mary Ann Reed and David Martin.
