Mount Hope Cemetery

An antique cemetery in New York, this land is home to any number of famed corpses. 

The delicate landscapes in this antique cemetery are a clue as to how precious its inhabitants are to history.

This cemetery is incredible, with beautiful landscaping and natural features as well as an incredibly varied “collection” (if you will) of tombs and monuments. It’s also the final resting place of such historically significant figures as Susan B. Anthony, Fredrick Douglass, John Jacob Bausch, and many others.
