Thursday, March 12, 2020 at 6:00 pm

SOLD OUT! REGISTRATION FOR THIS PROGRAM IS NOW CLOSED. WE APOLOGIZE BUT THERE WILL NOT BE A WAIT LIST FOR THIS PROGRAM.

Members-only programs are exclusive to active members of the Friends of Laurel Hill & West Laurel Hill Cemeteries. As a benefit of your membership donation, supporters are invited to get a view of our cemeteries that no ordinary visitor will ever experience with special programs, lectures, and tours.

The treasures to be found at Laurel Hill are not only underground - they can also be found inside our vast archives. Join Carol Yaster, the Friends’ resident researcher and genealogist, and Friends’ Weekend Coordinator, David Gurmai as they explore some of the less-often-seen items in our expansive collection. From letters and telegrams, to guide books and historical maps of the cemetery, take a look at all of the history housed inside the cemetery’s collections.

The program will take place on Thursday, March 12 at 6:00 pm, inside Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse at 3822 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19132. Free parking is located in the lot across the street from the Gatehouse. Refreshments will be served inside the Gatehouse following the program.

If you are not a member and are interested in attending programs like this, you can join here.

Note: There will not be a wait list for this program.
