Friends of Mount Hope Cemetery

Meet the Friends of Mount Hope Cemetery   

The Friends of Mount Hope Cemetery, a nonprofit organization, was founded to optimize the cemetery’s potential as a cultural resource through education, preservation and promotion of Mount Hope Cemetery’s unique heritage. Since its founding in 1980, the Friends of Mount Hope, or "The Friends," have worked to create educational programming for the cemetery, preserve cemetery monuments and structures, and maintain select horticultural specimens within the cemetery grounds.  

The organization offers guided walking tours of the cemetery every Sunday from May through October. Other special theme tours are offered during the summer and winter seasons. Private guided walking tours are also available with advance reservation and may be designed for a variety of interests (school classes, garden clubs, historical societies and social groups). 

Head to Mount Hope!
