Mount Hope Cemetery - Review

This beautiful cemetery is rather important for multiple reasons. For one, notable dignitaries such as Frederick Douglass, General E.G. Marshall, Margaret Woodbury Strong and Susan B Anthony have been laid to rest here. This was also USA’s first municipal cemetery. Its 350,000 graves have unusual groupings - veterans of specific wars, firefighters, Jews who passed away in poverty and so on. Geologically, it’s thought that that the land was covered in ice two miles thick about 12-14000 years ago. The left a remnant trail knowns as esker, today called the Indian Trail Avenue. As you walk through, check out the rather striking mausoleums and monuments - obelisks, temples, towers and statues. See the 1908 Civil War monument, the Defenders of the Flag. There is also an old catacomb system within the cemetery grounds. Over the course of the year the The Friends of Mount Hope Cemetery organise various themed and general guided tours.

Mount Hope Cemetery, Rochester Reviews

Google+
  • This site is absolutely stunning and offers some of the most beautiful resting places in the state. Many of the graves remain untouched and as they were over 100 years ago. The cemetery offers many differeny kinds of burials and even erected a garden for friends to scatter the ashes of their loved ones.

  • Beautiful and peaceful Victorian style cemetery. Our Indian trail goes straight through it on high ridges that were created by glacial melting and erosion. Great place just for a peaceful stroll and exploration of historic structures and geographic change. This cemetery once had several ponds. But now only one remains and is called Sylvan Waters. Very sentimental and historic place to explore, learn, get peace of mind, and rest your loved ones if you so choose.

  • Most beautiful and historical resting place in Rochester: Colonel Rochester, Susan B. Anthony, Frederick Douglas, Sibley Family + many aristocratic surnames. Immigrants from Germany, UK, and other parts of the world are buried here.

  • One of the most beautiful cemeteries I've ever been to.

  • Beautiful place to walk, incredible history, architecture, specimen trees and gardens. 200 acres to explore with family and friends. Dogs must be leashed.
