Laurel Hill Cemetery

As part of the photo shoot I did with the photogs at Eastern State Penitentiary, we also went to Laurel Hill located in the North section of Philadelphia. Laurel Hill is one of the few cemeteries in the nation to be honored with the designation of National Historic Landmark, a title received in 1998. Numerous prominent people are buried at the Cemetery, including many of Philadelphia’s leading industrial magnates. General Meade and thirty-nine other Civil War-era generals reside here, in addition to six Titanic passengers. Laurel Hill celebrated their 175th anniversary this year (1836-201).
