The Richard Cornell Graveyard is one of the few surviving 18th century cemeteries in New York city. It is closely associated with the Cornell family, some of the earliest settlers of the area. The cemetery, measuring 75 feet wide by 67 feet deep and enclosed by a high iron picket fence, was used in the 18th and 19th centuries as a private burial ground by the Cornell family.
