Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

Laurel Hill Cemetery

Laurel Hill Cemetery

Laurel Hill Cemetery does not conform to the typical “spooky” graveyard stereotype. Thanks to its green landscape, breathtaking views and beautiful sculptures and architecture—and interesting residents—it’s a popular spot for history buffs, picnickers, joggers, bikers and dog walkers. Visitors can enjoy free self-guided or cell phone tours, or join special events such as the Gravediggers’ Ball
