Laurel Hill Cemetery

Laurel Hill is one of Philadelphia's most prominent cemeteries, and they've done some interesting things to keep themselves afloat. They've got a snappy website, offer tons of themed tours through the grounds, and even signed on with cutting edge ad agency Red Tettemer to create a marketing campaign that had the city buzzing.

They also have some very funky promotional postcards with headstone images that they had on offer at the most recent Federation of Genealogical Societies conference back in September. Being the rabbit I am, I couldn't resist picking up quite a few.

Of course, postcards are meant for mailing. So if you'd like one, feel free to email me your address at, and I'll be happy to drop one in the mail to you!

Hello, Laurel Hill is a GORGEOUS Cemetery. I have made a few trips there.
I have several photos on my blog from both Laurel Hill and West Laurel Hill. Feel free to check them out.

I recently did some research of several people buried at Laurel Hill and I must say the folks at the cemetery organization were most helpful. Laurel Hill is certainly a fascinating place.

It is, isn't it? I have more admiration for them than ever now since going there this weekend. They seem very organized and willing to assist--it's great.
