Mount Moriah is the largest cemetery in Pennsylvania, and home to some of our city's finest grave architecture.  Trees and vines have engulfed the gravestones in some areas, giving the place the feel of a lost city in the jungle.  Almost every style of tomb can be found here, from Egyptian Revival to Art Nouveau. Guests will learn about the role of cemeteries as a place for leisure in the Victorian era, as well as the influence of the Freemasons.

This tour requires significant walking, so practical shoes and water are a must. Part wilderness and part sculpture-garden, this city of the dead is by turns eerie and poignant. Join Hidden City as we peel back the canopy and reveal the wonders below.
