Obscura Day 2015: The Secrets of Mount Hope Cemetery

Come explore Rochester's historic cemetery like it has rarely been before.

Join us on Obscura Day for an exclusive, specially-designed tour of Rochester's legendary Mount Hope Cemetery.

While Susan B. Anthony, Frederick Douglass, Bausch, & Lomb are among the historic notables laid to rest here, this walking tour through the gorgeous trees of Mount Hope will not feature them. Our excursion, led by the knowledgeable docents of the Friends of Mount Hope Cemetery, will focus on the hidden histories, the unknown stories, and the forgotten people buried six feet below.


Saturday, May 30th; two tours - 10 AM & 12 PM

Cost: $13

Location:  1133 Mt Hope Ave.

Meet in front of the gatehouse 

*There will be two 2 hour walking tours. Please be aware of which tour you bought tickets for*

Part of the ticket proceeds will be donated to the Friends of Mount Hope Cemetery.
