Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

Laurel Hill Cemetery

Laurel Hill Cemetery

Art, sculpture and architecture separate the magnificent Laurel Hill Cemetery from the typical graveyard. The 75-acre landscaped space holds beautiful gems, along with some notable residents—Rittenhouse, Strawbridge, Widener, Elkins, General Meade and six Titanic passengers. Visitors can enjoy free self-guided or cell phone tours, or join special events such as the Gravediggers’ Ball.
