• Laurel Hill is more than just a cemetery.

    Laurel Hill is more than just a cemetery.

    It is an outdoor sculptural garden, a horticultural gem and a truly unique historical resource. It also happens to be one of the few cemeteries in the United States to be honored with the designation of National Historic Landmark. So come by for a tour or program, to enjoy a picnic or simply to stroll through our 78 acres of art and history.
