Historical Laurel Hill is a wonderful resting place to a myriad of artists that worked across mediums. Many were inspired by the beauty and symmetry of nature like John Cassin, an ornithologist that discovered over 50 bird species and immortalized them in his engravings or Titian Ramsey Peale, who used watercolors to capture the fragile details of butterflies.
