I took a walk in the park the other day. I was within the city limits and within a Certified Wildlife Habitat.Mount Hope Cemetery is a not some hidden gem just across the street from the Strong/UR campus. There are organized and guided tours held routinely by the Friends of Mount Hope Cemetery and I just learned about Torch Light Tours which puts an interesting twist on an otherwise quiet walk through history. This is an urban park with hills, ponds, fountains, Victorian buildings, and monuments, incredible works of art, too many to count, marking the lives of families and individuals who contributed to what the City of Rochester has become. I don't know all the names but a few that I can recall include Susan B. Anthony, Frederick Douglas, Frank Gannett, Margaret Woodbury Strong, and John Jacob Bausch are a few of recognizable family names buried here.The website is www.fomh.org and it is a library of information and history. Be sure to check out the information on the Friends of Mount Hope Cemetery to learn about events, tours, volunteer opportunities and so much more.Most important....go visit, it's not creepy, but it is interesting and invigorating. And stroll over to the College Town complex for lunch or coffee afterwards. Parking is easy and free.
