Why should Laurel Hill and West Laurel Hill Cemeteries matter to you?Since Laurel Hill’s founding in 1836 and West Laurel Hill’s founding in 1869, these cemeteries have remained free and fully accessible educational and recreational resources for families, for nearby communities, and for faraway visitors. The Friends of Laurel Hill & West Laurel Hill Cemeteries was established to ensure they remain as such. With your support, we can continue to offer unique programming, restore our historic landscapes and monuments, and continue to serve as open green spaces for both the city of Philadelphia and Greater Philadelphia area.Why should you support the Friends of Laurel Hill & West Laurel Hill Cemeteries?As we move forward in this new decade, the Friends reflect and recognize all the wonderful progress we have made and continue to make. The number of guests we host at our 100+ public programs grows each year; we continue to beautify both our historic sites by planting more trees and plants, and by resetting hundreds of headstones. And in 2019, we evolved from solely protecting and preserving Laurel Hill Cemetery, to becoming the Friends of Laurel Hill & West Laurel Hill Cemeteries. Our two remarkable cemeteries are now connected, as are its members, working together for the stewardship and safeguarding of both historic properties.Your generous contributions to the Friends’ directly impacts the great work we are able to do.
