What kind of cemetery monument do you build for a wife who was one of Philadelphia's most prominent mediums? How do you memorialize a husband who went down on the Titanic? Or a son who fell at Little Big Horn? For that matter, how do you design a monument for yourself if you want posterity to remember that you were a passionate prison reformer, a leading sports announcer or simply a Philadelphia Gentleman? How do you express your religious faith in the twenty-first century and what do you do if you'd rather skip religious references entirely? We will explore Laurel Hill Cemetery's 78 acres and see how Philadelphians solved these problems over the last 177 years.
