Following a yellow fever epidemic in the late 18th century, Philadelphia developed a world-class water system to protect public health. This legacy includes the Fairmount Water Works, a marvel of its day. As technology progressed, more improvements were made to the water system. Join this presentation to learn more about the water system’s history and those that built it, many of whom are buried at Laurel Hill Cemetery.
