2016 TOUR SEASON

The Friends of Mount Hope Cemetery offer general and special-theme guided walking tours throughout the year. The 2016 season of regular public tours begins in January with one Winter Tour offered in each month -- January, February, and March -- plus a Springtime Tour in April. Regular weekend tours will begin in May.

The Winter and Springtime Tours leave from the south cemetery entrance, opposite The Distillery restaurant, and last from 60 to 90 minutes, depending on weather conditions. The tour route is entirely on flat, paved roads. In addition to general information about Mount Hope Cemetery, tours feature significant figures such as architect A.J. Warner and Revolutionary War veteran Alexander Millener. Other highlights include the cemetery's largest mausoleum, and the 50-foot-high monument honoring Hartwell Carver, father of the transcontinental railroad.
