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.
