Surprise Endings: They Never Saw It Coming

Walking Tour at Laurel Hill Cemetery on Sunday, December 5, 2021 at 1:00 pm

On this walking tour, you will meet some residents of Laurel Hill Cemetery’s southernmost section who arrived at their burial plot wondering how they got there so soon. These were ordinary citizens who were in the wrong place at the wrong time, and suffered a very sudden and quite unexpected demise. You’ll meet a teenager enjoying an afternoon excursion, an elderly man heading to a social event and an over-confident wannabe mobster. For these and others on the tour, fate dealt them an early grave.

This walking tour will take place on Sunday, December 5, 2021, at 1:00 pm departing from Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse entrance at 3822 Ridge Avenue Philadelphia, PA 19132.
