Coming to America: Laurel Hill's Immigrants

Saturday, November 16, 2019 at 1:00 PM

The history of America has always been shaped immigrants. Over the past 183 years, Laurel Hill has come to bear the remains of men and women from countries around the world who have played a role in America’s story. Laurel Hill’s founding mission as a nonsectarian retreat echoes the American promise of opportunity and equality that continues to beckon immigrants to our shores. Visit the graves of those individuals whose life stories reflect that promise – proud of their native lands, but choosing American soil as their final homes.
