Review of Homewood Cemetery

Homewood Cemetery

Attraction details
Reviewed 3 February 2013

My husband and I started in Frick Park and took the Homewood trail to the cemetery. Including wandering through the cemetery, we went about four miles. The trail is lovely. We focused on Millionaire's Row in the cemetery, which was fascinating--area history, art, natural beauty. We definitely plan to return when it is warmer (about 25 day of our visit) to explore more of the cemetery. There was something so fitting about being there in the starkness of winter, it was worth braving the cold!

This Cemetary, and the Homewood Cemetary have the most famous Pittsburger's buried there, along with some well known historical figures---they give guided tours for free. By the way--it is said that both are haunted.

Two reasons to go: (1) the older sections are interesting, with graves dating to the mid 1800s. Sad to see how many are babies, and how often baby and mother are buried together, probably a result of death in childbirth. (2) nice place to go for a walk or bike-ride: hilly paths through greenery

Millionaire's Row may have seen changes over the decades, but walk through this amazing place assures remembrance.

A very beautiful cemetery and a great place for a walk if you are in a meditative mood. Many prominent Pittsburghers are laid to rest here. It reflects the very varied ethnic groups that came to Pittsburgh at different times.
