Thomas Cemetery

DuPont State Forest is best known for its waterfalls, but a less known feature is Thomas Cemetery. The Thomas family deed in the area that is now DuPont State Forest dates back to 1799. Many of the stones are eroded beyond readability, but some can be seen with dates from the mid 1800s.
