‘Til Death Do Us Part: The Love Stories of Laurel Hill

Laurel Hill Cemetery | Feb. 11th 


Celebrate the “spirit” of Valentine’s Day with your better half in one of Philadelphia’s most romantic and mysterious locations. Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Love Stories wintertime walking tour was inspired by the little-known story of a little-known woman whose heart – and only her heart – now lies buried beneath the cemetery’s earth. Learn about her symbolic, final gesture, and other tales of love as varied as the souls from which they transpired… After all, some love stories are eternal; some love stories end; and some end very, very badly. Devotion, passion and faith prove to sway destinies as much as greed, lust and betrayal. Those stories that do not warm your heart will entertain and tantalize instead. The tour will conclude with a toasty, fireside reception replete with wine, hot chocolate and hors d’oeuvres.
