Self-Guided Tours at Mount Hebron Cemetery

As generations pass and the memories of these loved ones fade and eventually disappear, there is a risk that the stories and sacrifices of those interred may slip away and be forgotten. This history of those resting at Mount Hebron Cemetery is not just a story of individuals, it is a story of people who persevered to help create our city and in turn, our country. We want these stories to come alive and that the legacy of these individuals and their cultural history will be available for generations of today into the future. A list of our featured tours are listed below. You can view all of our tours here.
