History of Homewood Cemetery

November 8, 2011

Speaker:   MARILYN EVERT, Homewood Cemetery Historian

Homewood Cemetery
from their website:
The Homewood Cemetery is part of the American Cemetery Movement of the 1800s.   The cemetery was founded in 1878…a Lawn Park style.   At the time of the Cemetery’s foundation, the East End was already home to some of Pittsburgh’s most wealthy and influential families.

The Cemetery is currently undertaking a major restoration effort to maintain the Lawn Park intention of the cemetery’s design.
