All Thorns, No Roses Tour at West Laurel Hill

Themed Tour, Sunday, February 13 from 1 to 3 PM EST

Roses fall, but the thorns remain.

With over a century of burial records, biographies, letters, and press clippings of those buried at West Laurel Hill Cemetery, there is a wealth of stories about love lost, betrayed, or gotten with guise.
