Discover the Beauty and History of Philadelphia's Laurel Hill Cemetery

This summer I am committed to exploring sites in and around Philadelphia that are off the beaten track. I had a blast of real history this afternoon while visiting Laurel Hill Cemetery right off of Ridge Avenue with my daughter, niece and nephews.

It rests on 78 acres of art and Philadelphia history. The landscaping is spectacular and the tombstones, mausoleums and various statues are just breathtaking. Part of the cemetery overlooks the Schuylkill River and is quite scenic.
