The Allegheny Cemetery stretches 300-acres in Lawrenceville, bordered by Butler Street, Stanton Avenue and Mossfield Street. Between the rows of headstones and mausoleums that line the burial ground, many people run into some four-legged visitors.

The National Park Service has restored a family cemetery that just happens to lie within the Flight 93 National Memorial, which honors those killed on the hijacked airliner that crashed in western Pennsylvania during the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

The cemetery belongs to the Sorber family, who buried relatives there from 1856 to 1892.

The park service says it has straightened headstones, landscaped and cleaned up the small cemetery, and fenced it in. The park service will offer tours of the fixed up cemetery on Tuesday.
