Many members of the McWorter family planned that part of their family reunion would be held at New Philadelphia, with the cooperation of the New Philadelphia Association (NPA) and the archaeology program. The family scheduled their event with the idea of making a trip to the archaeology site and visiting the family cemetery. Gerald McWorter made the commitment to work with the NPA toward preserving the history of the town and the restoration of the cemetery. The placing of the town on the National Register of Historic Places is described in this chapter, which also considers the nomination of the site as a National Historic Landmark. The McWorter descendants are carefully planning the restoration of the cemetery, including the stabilization of some of the headstones and placing a general memorial in or near the cemetery to commemorate all of those buried, marked and unmarked, who contributed to the history of New Philadelphia.
