This article does justice to Haym Salomon’s existence and the huge part he had in establishing our country. However few citizens know that his actual grave site to this day is not known. In realization of that fact, as first past president of Haym Salomon Lodge #663, Brith Sholom and member of a blue ribbon panel, a project was proposed designated to in some way create a memorial in Mikvah Israel Cemetery on the north side of Spruce st. between 8th and 9th sts in Philadelphia, PA .where the patriot is buried.
After much time and negotiation with the board members of the cemetery, the Haym Salomon Memorial Committee agreed to the following: Sponsored by the Haym Salomon Lodge #663, we would acquire the funds and reconstruct the walkways and brick walls surrounding the entire cemetery in order to receive permission to place an large, engraved memorial marker of Barre Granite just inside the cemetery gates.,
True to the agreement, the job promised was done, the stone was placed and the and on June 17th 1980 Philadelphia Inquirer Newspaper covered the event,complete with a background story and photograph .. The marker is easily seen by all who desire to look through the gates. The inscription simply states “An American Patriot” At last there is a marker of recognition for this heroic Jewish hero.
