About this Event

Keels will lead Athenaeum members on a walking tour of Laurel Hill Cemetery, where we will see monuments created by many of these early architects and artists. We will visit the final resting places of John Notman, Frank Furness, Napoleon LeBrun, and Thomas Ustick Walter. The Laurel Hill tour will also examine changing tastes and fashions in grave markers, from the classical obelisks and urns of the Federal period, to the richly decorated crosses of the Gothic Revival, to the massive mausoleums of the Gilded Age.

Transportation Included. Please wear comfortable shoes, tour will last 90-120 minutes.
