About

Ancient Native American Burial Ground in Bensalem, PA?

This is in the Cornwells Heights section of Bensalem. In the 1960s, along the creek adjacent to the Ramblers' little league fields, the Wolset brothers from nearby Sunset Lane used to dig forts, some of them pretty deep. This was before the Ramblers moved to this location and the site was woods. One time, they dug up a skelton. The Bensalem police brought in an expert who determined that it was ancient and American Indian / Native American in origin, and that the site may have been an ancient burial ground. A news story at the time appeared in the Bucks County Courier Times.

Comments : I ran into David Wolset on Memorial Day 2018. He was not with his brothers when they dug up the skeleton. He believes it may have been sent by the police to the Smithsonian. As to location, he said if you come out the front door of 1955 Hulmeville Road and walk straight across the street into the woods just a little way, that is where the hole was dug.
