Word on the Street

In 1881, The New York Times remarked that the monument of William J. Mullen, temporarily on display at the 1876 Centennial before being installed at Laurel Hill was constructed in “…attitudes ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous.”  175 years later we still can’t stop talking about it.  Monuments come in all shapes, sizes and composition in Laurel Hill Cemetery, but some stand out prominently among the rest.  Join them as they visit the final resting place of Mr. Mullen and many more of Laurel Hill’s most unusual Victorian memorials.   If you’ve ever wanted insight into cemetery symbolism, this is the tour for you!
