Walking Tour at Laurel Hill Cemetery on Sunday, July 11, 2021, at 10:00 am
Circuses! Selfies! And…Mummy Parties! Oh, My!
The history of Philadelphia isn’t just for grownups! You’ve probably seen Billy Penn’s statue on top of City Hall. But what about the man who designed it? Do you know about the woman who wrote Mary Had A Little Lamb? Or the man who took the very first selfie? What about the pen-pal of Thomas Jefferson who invented ketchup? Join us on a tour of Laurel Hill Cemetery for kids and learn about some of the neat, weird, and occasionally gooey stories of Laurel Hill’s permanent residents!
