Dedicated in 1838 in Rochester NY, Mount Hope is America's first municipal Victorian cemetery.
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 marking 350,000 graves across 196 acres.

Our Reception & Admissions volunteers welcome and greet visitors, provide professional customer service & hospitality, manage admissions & retail sales, offer refreshments in our Gate House, and prepare visitors for the tour experience. Reception & Admission volunteers serve in teams of two! Sign up with a friend!
