Walking Tours of The Homewood Cemetery

There are few better places to learn about a city’s history than from its cemeteries. Records of people’s lives weren’t kept as thoroughly as they are now, so some of the most fascinating life stories can get lost, especially those of women, who were never in the history books to begin with. Audacious Pioneers: A walking tour of the Homewood Cemetery aims to broaden the understanding of Pittsburgh history by learning about its dead dames, from a palm reading countess to a renowned opera singer. Though it might be tempting, it’s best not to feed the ghosts.
