This memorial currently being developed recognizes the Irish community buried in unmarked, sunken graves in the Catholic Pauper section of Evergreen Cemetery, most of whom were Irish immigrants.
We hope to have Phase One of the memorial complete and unveiled in September 2021.
Nearly half of the roughly 1,400 umarked graves are children and the average age of those buried there is twenty three. This memorial is a symbol of recognition of their humanity, their lives, their dreams, and their names, in hopes that their stories might continue.
