Walking Tour of West Laurel Hill Cemetery
Barry Jeffries
Landscape Architect and Arboretum Guide

Come join us as we explore the historic West Laurel Hill Cemetery and its natural beauty as the seasons change. Located in Bala Cynwyd, Lower Merion Township, overlooking the Schuylkill River and Manayunk, the cemetery's 185 acres are arranged in the "landscape lawn" manner with winding roads and undulating hills accented by distinctive specimen trees. We will examine its compelling landscape history and beauty as well as its stunning architectural treasures. Recognized as a national historic register site, it contains over 275 free-standing family mausoleums, commemorating the lives of many famous Philadelphians. Some notables include W. Atlee Burpee, pioneer seedsman, Anna Jarvis, founder of Mothers' Day, and many late 19th-century industrialists. We will meet at West Laurel Hill Cemetery. Follow the directional signs from the cemetery entrance at Belmont Avenue to the Conservatory/Bell Tower where we will meet. For directions go to the West Laurel Hill Cemetery website at:
