Laurel Hill Cemetery marks Women’s History Month and the Centennial of the 19th Amendment with a program honoring some of our most fascinating ladies. Activists, influencers, and philanthropists; movers, shakers, and more than one Titanic survivor; each found her final resting place in the Central section of Laurel Hill Cemetery. Join us as we unearth their stories, along with those of other women whose contributions to society continue to resonate today. This inspirational walking tour will conclude with a toast to all women of the past, and the present.
