The ceremony is open to the public at the Smyrna cemetery where governors, Titanic survivors and the former airplane altitude world record holder are among those buried.
The State Archives and St. Peter’s Church will unveil a historic marker at St. Peter's Cemetery on North Main Street in Smyrna Sunday, Aug. 26 at 2 p.m.
The cemetery is across the street from Wright Municipal Park (formerly Smyrna Municipal Park).
Among those buried at the cemetery are three Delaware governors, a British Air Commodore who set the world altitude record in 1936, two survivors of the sinking of the Titanic and veterans of most of America’s wars.
Invited guests include Delaware’s living previous governors, local political dignitaries, State Archives officials, and officials of the Episcopal Church.
The public is welcome to attend.
After the marker ceremony, a brief tour will be given of some of the historic graves.
