Pocket of Paradise Walking Tour



Laurel Hill East and the Surrounding Neighborhood

Join us for a walking tour that covers both the history of the area, as well as the more recent past as it has been experienced firsthand by neighborhood residents. Highlights include this history of original settlers, the rise, and fall of Dobson Mills, as well as the second phase of the industrial revolution that included household names such as Pep Boys, Tastykake, and Penn Reels.

Tours will be led by Hidden City, area residents, and the Friends of Laurel Hill.  The tour is from 11-1 p.m. beginning at Laurel Hill Cemetery.  Note: the tour is limited to 25 people. 


  • Free, RSVPs are requested


The Friends of Laurel Hill gratefully acknowledge support from PNC Arts Alive, the Connelly Foundation, and the RAH Civic Association for their support of this initiative.
