Historic Cemetery Stroll

Last weekend LaLa, Junebug and I took a nice walk through the historic Mt. Hope Cemetery in Rochester, NY. I thought you might enjoy some beautiful images of the fantastic fall foliage in Central New York and some Upstate history as well.

The cemetery was founded in 1838 and covers 196 beautifully landscaped hilly acres. It is one of the first rural/garden cemeteries in the US. Most weekends informative tours are held by the Friends of Mount Hope to educate the public on the importance of Mt. Hope and many of its famous residents including; Susan B. Anthony, Fredrick Douglass, John Bausch and Henry Lomb, Margaret Woodbury Strong and horticulture scientist George Ellwanger.

Your photos are incredible! I can’t get over how beautiful and vivid the leaves are. Down here in Maryland, we’ve had to make do with pretty mediocre foliage! My boyfriend is from Gerry, N.Y., and is always telling me about the gorgeous colors in New York. Hope to check it out myself someday!

Found your blog today and so glad I did. I love meandering through old cemeteries. Wonderful pictures.

How beautiful. So peaceful and soothing. Thank you for sharing. Just found your blog today through a Ballard Designs photo of your office! ;o)

Thanks for stopping by Laura! I’m so glad that you found me!
