Mount Hope Cemetery holds a special place in the hearts of most Rochesterians. As the final the resting place for luminaries such as Susan B. Anthony, Frederick Douglass, Frank Gannett, Margaret Woodbury Strong and George Whipple, it is one of our most wonderful treasures.
But, did you know there is another side to our famous cemetery…A darker side? Join us on October 26th for High Noon and meet some of Mount Hope’s permanent residents who bent, broke, or enforced the law; or whose lives met unfortunate ends.
Please join us at noon on Wednesday, Oct. 26, 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.
