Marta On The Move takes a tour of Homewood Cemetery and learns the history.
My husband and I meet Jennie Benford Director of Programming at the Homewood Cemetery on a beautiful summer day. We greet each other kindly, and proceed to walk the grounds of the cemetery. Jennie Benford is extremely passionate and knowledgeable about the history of the cemetery. As we walk she can’t wait to tell us about how it got it’s name, it’s layout, and the various architecture forms of the tombstones. As my husband and I walked along with her, we learned so many glimpses of Pittsburgh’s past. Join us on our stroll to highlight pieces from each of three tours that the Homewood Cemetery Historical Tours offer. Their Founders Day Celebration is this coming Saturday the 22nd so head on down and check it out. There will be food trucks, bands, and information available. Take a tour around the world and discover the rich history Pittsburgh’s past residents. Check it out HERE.
