The Friends of Mount Hope Cemetery will offer three opportunities to experience the beauty of the cemetery in winter. The 60-90 minute tour route is entirely on flat, paved roads that are routinely plowed by cemetery staff. In addition to historical information about Mount Hope and famous Rochester citizens who are buried in the south end, tours will include stops at the cemetery's newest mausoleum and an impressive monument erected by the Union Pacific Railroad.
Each tour will follow a different route.
All tour participants must wear masks and maintain social distance. Tour size is limited, so register early to save your spot.
