Celebrate the “spirit” of Valentine’s Day with your better half in one of Philadelphia’s most romantic and mysterious locations. Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Love Stories wintertime walking tour was inspired by the little-known story of a little-known woman whose heart – and only her heart – now lies buried beneath the cemetery’s earth. Learn about her symbolic, final gesture, and other tales of love as varied as the souls from which they transpired… After all, some love stories are eternal; some love stories end; and some end very, very badly. Devotion, passion and faith prove to sway destinies as much as greed, lust and betrayal. Those stories that do not warm your heart will entertain and tantalize instead. The tour will conclude with a toasty, fireside reception replete with wine and hors d’oeuvres.
The tour will take place on Saturday, February 9 at 11:00am, departing from Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse entrance at 3822 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19132. Free parking is located in the lot across the street from the Gatehouse.
