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.
