Laurel Hill Cemetery
This sacred place is not just a cemetery but also a beautiful botanical and sculpture garden. It is also one of the few cemeteries in the U.S. to be designated a historical landmark. Built in the 1830s, it is the final resting place of many Civil War veterans and other notables placed under ornate and beautifully carved markers and sepulchers. As well as being a place for the dead, it is a place to celebrate life and the living - and all the things that make life beautiful especially art. The cemetery hosts events such as classical music concerts and performing arts.
