Plain Township celebrated the 200th anniversary of Henry Warstler Cemetery on May 16, 2009. The Henry Warstler Cemetery has been a part of Plain Township since its founding and is the final resting place of many of the Township’s founding fathers.
Hundreds of people attended to embrace the rich history of this historic site and witness the dedication of an elm tree and plaque in honor of the Veterans of Plain Township. The elm tree was generously donated by Rice's Nursery. Judge Edward J. Elum, a naval veteran, spoke at the dedication.
History came to life with an Abraham Lincoln living historian who interacted with the crowd. A display of Plain Township's history was made available by the Plain Township Historical society, and a self-guided cemetery tour was made available to attendees.
