Home to the Prosperous & Penniless: Walking Tour of Mount Hope Cemetery

When: Sat., June 23, 11 a.m.-12:45 p.m. 2018

Cam Tran will lead the tour starting with a leisurely stroll down Grove Avenue, a picturesque street separating the north and south parts of the Cemetery. Buried on either side of this street are the richest and the poorest Rochesterians—millionaires residing in regal mausoleums and destitute people buried in poor lots. All lie as neighbors, and all have fascinating stories. This tour is on a flat, paved surface, and is accessible for people with mobility challenges and wheelchairs. Meet at the south entrance opposite Distillery Restaurant. Handicap accessible.

Price: $10
