Що ви робитимете

Discover Philadelphia’s past by discovering where people lived, where they died, and where they were laid to rest. First, we’ll see Christ Church and its burial ground, and learn about Philadelphia’s late notables, including founding fathers and mothers; as well as Revolutionary War soldiers.

We'll view landmark sites as we venture from touristy Old City towards Society Hill, a quiet neighborhood of tree-lined streets and eighteenth century homes. There, we'll stand outside a Jewish burial ground, see the nation's first hospital, see a historic African American church and learn about black American burial rituals in history, and walk through three other beautiful old cemeteries.

Throughout our walk, you'll find out about a dramatic 1793 Yellow Fever epidemic, as well as 18th century burials, bloodletting, and even body-snatching. Those of all faiths, or no faiths at all, are welcome! So join me for a lively tour as we visit Philadelphia’s most storied buried dead.
Other things to note
The tour is rain or shine, but I'll modify or shorten it if weather would affect our experience. If you'd like a date/time that isn't listed, reach out! If I can accommodate, I absolutely will!

Burial grounds tell stories. They speak of communities, of families, of individual people--and that's why they've always fascinated me. I'm an avid history enthusiast who studies Philadelphia's vibrant and complicated past, especially what's untold and unknown. I'm a member of the Association of Philadelphia Tour Guides and a dedicated volunteer for the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, where I’ve spent hours diving into primary sources. In more than a decade of professional work in arts administration, I've led countless history-focused continual learning programs for libraries, historic sites, and museums, including programs on historic cemeteries. I'm excited to share what I've learned--the true stories of these sacred spaces that tell the story of my city.

We’ll visit Christ Church Burial Ground, where founding fathers are buried; as well as Pennsylvania Hospital, where they tried not to die. Come along for this unique glimpse of the city's past--and those who've passed away.
