Historic Mercer Cemetery – Trenton, NJ

Hunter Research commissioned Hargrove International to conduct supplemental work related to their preservation plan for Mercer Cemetery. Consultation included a heritage tourism assessment of the historic cemetery located in downtown Trenton, New Jersey, to provide recommendations on the potential future uses of the site and to explore options to develop the cemetery as both a historical site and a passive recreational park. Hargrove conducted an on-site assessment in April 2022 and investigated other cemeteries to identify viable uses that could be replicated or modified for the Mercery Cemetery.
