Lobb's Cemetery, a.k.a. Lobb's Run Cemetery, is a historic cemetery in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. It takes its name from Lobb's Run, a minor tributary of the Monongahela River, which flows by the entrance to the cemetery.

The former Yohogania County Courthouse was once located close to this cemetery, and some of the rebels involved in the Whiskey Rebellion were buried in this cemetery around 1794.

The site was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992.
