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.
Laurel Hill is a unique destination for connoisseurs of art, architecture and horticulture, and the final resting place of countless individuals who shaped the history of our city and nation. Nestled on a scenic bluff high above the Schuylkill River, the site also affords spectacular views that cannot be found elsewhere.
