Like every cemetery of its age, the grounds of Harrisburg Cemetery may be uneven or have hidden holes and voids. Also, beware of the monuments on the grounds as some may be unstable or collapse if disturbed. The Harrisburg Cemetery Association prohibits any type of chalking, rubbing, or cleaning of monuments, or the lifting or moving of any monument, stone, or adornment on their grounds.

Pre-registration is required.
