Virtual Visit: Horticultural Highlights of Laurel Hill & West Laurel Hill CemeteriesPresented in collaboration with Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens

Incorporated in 1836 and 1869 respectively, historic Laurel Hill and West Laurel Hill Cemeteries are non-profit, non-denominational cemeteries that combine to create a 265-acre arboretum and outdoor sculpture garden rich in cultural and social history. The cemeteries continue to serve families in their time of tragedy and loss, provide beautiful open space for outdoor respite and healthy activity, and are anchor institutions in the community. Join Mackenzie Knight-Fochs for a virtual visit to explore horticultural highlights of these two cemeteries, including a one-of-a-kind rock garden, a SITES Gold landscape for green burials, State Champion trees, and the final resting places of notable horticulturists.

Free of charge; registration is required. This lecture will be held virtually via Zoom. A link and viewing instructions will be emailed after your registration is complete.

The Worlds of Thomas JeffersonAdopted sons, signers of the Declaration, painters, sculptors, men of science, ladies of belles-lettres, famous physicians, pariahs of free press, purveyors of fine wine and, of course, political provokers both friend and foe: all recognized by Thomas Jefferson as luminaries in our nation’s early “Constellation of Worthies.” They now rest peacefully at Laurel Hill; but their stories refuse to conform to those tenets, boldly demanding to be told. This walking tour will be led by foremost Jefferson scholar and acclaimed portrayer of America’s third President, William David Barker (www.thethomasjefferson.com), who will be visiting Laurel Hill from his home in Williamsburg, Virginia.

The tour will take place on Sunday, October 24, 2021, at 1:00 pm, departing from Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse entrance at 3822 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19132. Free parking is located in the lot across the street from the Gatehouse.

5Rhythms Wave ClassThe Friends of Laurel Hill & West Laurel Hill Cemeteries are partnering with 5 Rhythms to explore the joy of dance through a waves class, once a month from March to November. Join us for ecstatic movement in the cemetery!
Waves Class Structure
Warm-up Wave, short Talk & Demonstration, 2nd Wave, Closing.
Waves are the foundation and fundamentals of the 5Rhythms practice. The rhythms of FLOWING, STACCATO, CHAOS, LYRICAL and STILLNESS® are guiding us into an embodied state of being. The focus of the Waves level is experiencing the body as a fluid entity, with the outcome that we discover our feet and stop holding our breath.
About 5Rhythms
Created by Gabrielle Roth and practiced by tens of thousands worldwide, 5Rhythms is a philosophy, perspective, performance art, and dynamic movement practice rooted in the principle that if you put the psyche in motion it will heal itself. Movement is both the medicine and the metaphor, reaching across all languages, cultures, and age groups to transform suffering into art, art into awareness, and awareness into action.
Wherever the 5Rhythms are practiced, a community is born to dance, to sweat, to change, to support, and to provide a safe space for each of us to shatter the ego’s hold and awaken the juicy, unpredictable, fascinating, edge-walking, rock star part of ourselves that yearns to be free.
Creativity. Connection. Community.
This class will take place on Sunday, September 26, 2021 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm, in the Valley View section of Laurel Hill Cemetery at 3822 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19132. Further instructions regarding space, what to bring and parking will be sent to ticket holders the Friday before class.
Tickets are $20 and must be purchased in advance through 5Rhythms.
Class is open to beginners and all levels of experience.

Sinners and ScandalsLaurel Hill has its brave military heroes like George Gordon Meade, its uplifting reformers like Sarah Josepha Hale, and selfless philanthropists like Robert Carson. But what about the less than pure spirits? The South Philly gangster who got whacked when he tried to infiltrate the Schuylkill County numbers racket? The Civil War hero, who made his fortune from white lightning and who, because of his many illicit affairs, was referred to by the local press as “a slayer of innocence and a robber of chastity”? The female grifter who conned New York City and then sipped strychnine while a dozen bill collectors tried to batter down her door? The final resting places of these troubled souls show Laurel Hill’s scandalous, sinful and sordid side.

This walking tour will take place on Saturday, October 30, 2021, at 1:00 pm, departing from Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse at 3822 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19132. Free parking is located in the lot across the street from the Gatehouse.

New Life for Old Cemeteries: Connecting Communities and Open Space Conference Day 1Cemeteries in America date from the 1830s when increasingly, cities became too dense for respectable burials. “Rural” cemeteries were created outside city limits as eternal resting places for the dead. This was a time before there were public parks and art museums, and these rural cemeteries served as places for the living to escape the din of the industrial city and enter a space of peaceful contemplation amid winding roads and picturesque vistas. Cemeteries became destinations for families, where with picnic basket in tow, they would enjoy the sculptured monuments and beautifully designed botanical gardens.
Today, historic cemeteries continue to represent large portions of open space in many cities. Preserving this open space, particularly in an era of global climate change, is critical for the sustainability of urban communities. Cemeteries, especially during the recent pandemic, increasingly became places of refuge and recreation, peace, and connection. Caring for their living collections of canopy trees and shrubs, as well as the resting places of their dead, has never been more important.
Learn how cemeteries are an integral part of our urban infrastructure and ecosystem and how preserving and caring for these important open spaces are vital to the ecological, economic and social sustainability of communities today.
Who should attend: Staff and volunteers of primarily older/historic cemeteries, open space preservationists, historians, urban planners, and monument proponents who see the cultural value in commemorating people buried in cemeteries.

This includes the composer who created the first serious American symphonic work and was also the first music critic in the United States; the woman who wrote the first words that Thomas Edison uttered into his recently invented phonograph; and the “Bruce Springsteen of Early 20th Century American Opera,” who riled up audiences everywhere from Philadelphia’s Academy of Music to Teddy Roosevelt’s White House to the opera houses of Australia circa 1913.
