Laurel Hill Cemetery, founded in 1836, occupies a 74 acre tract of land in the East Falls section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and overlooks the Schuylkill River. The cemetery was placed on the National Historic Landmark list in 1998 as one of America's largest Victorian era cemeteries. It's a great place for a casual walk or a day of photography with its many statues, marble obelisks and elaborate hillside tombs and mausoleums.
