Early in Congregation Rodeph
Sholom's founding, our ancestors bought a
plot of land on Park Avenue in Manhattan for burial purposes. After
the inadequacy of this space for a cemetery, the Congregation acquired over
sixty acres of land on Cypress Avenue. We dedicated Union Field Cemetery
in 1878 when it was a three-hour ride from the Synagogue by horse and buggy.
In 1926, at the
time when the Congregation was planning its move from
Lexington Avenue to its current location on West 83rd Street, we dedicated a
new gatehouse at
Union Field Cemetery to replace the chapel built in 1889.
