“Who are ya gonna believe—me, or your own eyes?” -Chico Marx, “Duck Soup”
Rumor, speculation, conjecture, spin. Outright lies that become folklore. Join us for an evening among our “permanent residents” whose stories could easily be rendered as what we call “fake news.” The rumor that caused a riot during a performance of Romeo and Juliet; the belief that a popular doctor was entombed with expensive jewelry; and once and for all, the truth behind the Mother and Twins monument.
Come along. The truth may or may not set you free, but it’s good conversation.
The tour will take place twice on Thursday, August 27th at 5:00PM and 7:00PM, on the grounds of Laurel Hill Cemetery: 3822 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia PA 19132. Free parking is located in the lot across the street from the Gatehouse. This program is free for members only. Space is extremely limited so RSVP today to reserve your spot. Please only one registration per member. Members must be registered in advance to attend. If you are not a member and want to join us, you can become a member here.
Note: There will not be a waitlist for this program.
