‘Til Death Do Us Part: Love Stories of Laurel Hill East
Laurel Hill East
Celebrate the “spirit” of Valentine’s Day with your better half in one of Philadelphia’s most romantic and mysterious locations. Laurel Hill East’s love stories walking tour was inspired by the little-known story of Mary Peterson whose heart – and only her heart – now lies buried beneath the cemetery’s earth. Learn about her symbolic, final gesture, and other tales of love as varied as the souls from which they transpired.
Each participant will take home Mary’s story and an anatomical heart chocolate pop from Mueller’s Chocolate Company!
