The Krusen Cemetery, situated in the northern part of the borough, was established in 1867 by Richard Krusen. It occupies a circular mound like knoll, less than 100 feet in diameter, which rises about eight feet above the level of the surrounding land. Some are inclined to believe it is an old Indian mound, but no attempt to explore it has ever been made. This cemetery contains the graves of many early settlers. The limited area caused it to be filled quickly and burials there ceased several years ago. Copied by Lola W. Franke, Wellsboro, Pa. July 6, 1970.
