Dedicated in 1838, Rochester’s Mount Hope is America's first municipal Victorian cemetery. Situated on 196 acres of land within the Mt. Hope-Highland Historic District, the cemetery is the permanent resting place of more than 350,000 people, including Frederick Douglass, a prominent figure in the abolitionist movement of the 19th Century, and Susan B. Anthony.


Set in a picturesque landscape shaped by retreating glaciers, the cemetery features more than 80 mausoleums, soaring Egyptian obelisks, winged angels of mercy, a Florentine cast-iron fountain, two stone chapels in Gothic Revival style, a Moorish gazebo, and infinitely varied tombstones.


The cemetery has guided walking tours as well as private guided walking tours for those who are interested in viewing the grounds while learning about the cemetery’s history.
