St. Casimir's CemeterySt. Casimir's Cemetery is the primary cemetery used by Lithuanians in the Pittsburgh area.  The cemetery is located on Hamilton Rd. in Whitehall Boro, a suburban community south of the City of Pittsburgh.  It is located adjacent to the grounds of the Sisters of St. Francis, a community of nuns founded by Lithuanians.  The cemetery was affiliated with the former St. Casimir Parish that was located on the South Side of Pittsburgh.  The church was closed in the early 1990s during a consolidation of parishes in the area.  The former St. Casimir School, which was adjacent to the church, now houses condominium apartments.  The church building was recently sold and is being converted into condominiums.

The cemetery is still well maintained.  There appears to be plenty of vacant land for new customers if you are interested!  The cemetery is now administered by the Diocese of Pittsburgh.  Click here for a list of some of the names of people interred at St. Casimir's.  There is another Lithuanian Cemetery in the West View section of Pittsburgh as well as one in Homestead, PA.
