Mount Hope Cemetery may be Rochester’s greatest example of romantic landscape design. “Reading” this cultural landscape and its evolution reveals the social, religious, economic, and intellectual forces that influenced the design of the cemetery and helped define the built environment of Rochester.
We’ll look at why Mount Hope Cemetery—a veritable museum of architecture, art, and landscape design—remains relevant today, and how it fits into the greater span of American history and culture.
Please join us at noon on Wednesday, Oct. 30, in Miner Library’s History of Medicine room. Dennis Carr, a founding member of the Friends of Mount Hope Cemetery and Miner Library staff, will lead the discussion.
Admission is FREE. Everyone is welcome. Feel free to bring your lunch.
