A Merry Laurel Hill Christmas



Laurel Hill East

What do Christmas and cemeteries have in common? Well, not much… but as the secular aspects of the holiday evolved over the decades of the 19th century, those who contributed to that evolution have found their final resting place at Laurel Hill East! This tour will explore those individuals connected to events and incidents that have indelibly arisen from the holiday.
