The Landscape Committee maintains common gardens throughout the cemetery.
The tour program is one of the most well known activities of the Friends of Mount Hope Cemetery. Each year from May through October, knowledgeable guides conduct public tours of the cemetery's north section on Sundays at 2:00 p.m. and Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. Weekly theme tours are also offered throughout the tour season. Admission to public and theme tours is $12/person. Special tours are available for schools and other organizations.
We welcome new members. Membership entitles you to receive our newsletter, Epitaph, with outstanding articles on cemetery history and news of the Friends. Members also receive free tour admission. It is through annual membership fees, donations and the generous contributions of volunteers that we are able to support the many projects of the Friends.
A free pocket guide including a map of Mount Hope Cemetery is available at the cemetery office (1133 Mount Hope Avenue) and gatehouse (791 Mount Hope Avenue). The gatehouse, headquarters of the Friends, is open to the public when tours are scheduled.
