Zion Hill Cemetery in Columbia, PA is the final resting place of countless African American wives and mothers, husbands and sons, chambermaids and schoolteachers, and valiant soldiers. Buried here is Robert Loney, a conductor on the Underground Railroad and a soldier with Company I of the 32nd United States Colored Troops (USCT) Regiment that was raised in Pennsylvania. Zion Hill had fallen into ruins by the late twentieth century, a victim of neglect and nearby road construction. In 1997, funds were raised for permanent improvements. Community volunteers cleared brush and installed simple wooden crosses to mark the probable locations of graves. Today the cemetery is lovingly cared for by volunteers.
