AAA Editor Notes
Laurel Hill Cemetery, 3822 Ridge Ave. within Fairmount Park, incorporates striking architecture and landscape design elements into its 78 acres. The cemetery represents one of the nation's earliest examples of landscape architecture. It is shaded by large trees and contains interesting statuary. Many notable historical figures are buried here, including 40 Civil War-era generals, Philadelphia industrialists and six passengers aboard the RMS Titanic.
A cemetery map and cell phone audio tour brochure are available at the office. Monthly guided tours are available (schedule varies).
