Laurel Hill Cemetery marks Women’s History Month with a program honoring some of their most accomplished broads and dames. What do a Revolutionary War lady patriot, the first burial at Laurel Hill, a great-granddaughter of Benjamin Franklin, and a famous publisher have in common? The easy answer is that they are all buried in North Laurel Hill, the Cemetery’s oldest section. Join us as we unearth their stories, along with those of other women whose contributions to science and other disciplines have made life as we know it possible. This inspirational walking tour will conclude with a toast to classy broads and daring dames of past… and present.
The tour will take place on Saturday, March 24 at 1:00pm, departing from Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse entrance at 3822 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19132. Free parking is located in the lot across the street from the Gatehouse.
