All may be peaceful in the cemetery now, but that wasn’t always the case. Some of our permanent residents got themselves involved in epic disagreements which lasted years, and had far reaching impacts. Our “Famous Fights and Feuds” tour will tell you about broken engagements, affairs, insults, and murder, all of which stemmed from vendettas long since forgotten. Come enjoy one of the juicier, more salacious (but still educational) historical gossip sessions we offer as you tour the final resting places of those who held their grudges to the very end. Who was right? Who was wrong? That will be for you to decide as you listen to the tales of long-ago quarrels.
The walking tour will take place on Thursday, August 30 at 6:00pm. Enter at 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 and within the cemetery. The cost is $20/person; $18/students and seniors and $17/members. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online.
