Explore Laurel Hill Cemetery: More Than a Final Resting Place
Laurel Hill Cemetery, one of the few cemeteries in the United States to be honored with the designation of National Historic Landmark, is nestled on over 78 acres on a scenic bluff high above the Schuylkill River, affording spectacular views that cannot be found elsewhere. In addition to serving as the final resting place of countless individuals who shaped the history of our region and nation, including many of Philadelphia's leading industrial magnates, nearly forty Civil War-era generals and six Titanic passengers, it is an outdoor sculptural garden, horticultural gem and truly unique historical resource. During our private tour, get a rare glimpse of some of these final resting places while learning the history behind this favorite retreat.
