Unsinkable to Unthinkable: Titanic Victims and Other Watery Deaths


Apr 15, 2018
01:00 PM until 03:00 PM


This April 15 marks the 106th anniversary of one of the most famous tragedies in modern history: the sinking of the R.M.S. Titanic. Taking nearly two years to build, the ship was the largest of its kind and outfitted with the latest technologies, thus earning its reputation as the “unsinkable” ship. This walking tour will feature the stories of six passengers from the Philadelphia area who were aboard the liner as she sunk to the bottom of the sea. While some of them survived and others were never recovered, all six are forever memorialized at Laurel Hill. Along the way, the tour will pause at the graves of other Laurel Hill residents whose fates were similarly sealed by the sea.


The walking tour will take place on Sunday, April 15 at 1pm, departing from Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse entrance at 3822 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19132. Free parking is located in the lot across the street from the Gatehouse. The cost is $15/person; $13/students and seniors; or $12/members. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online at www.thelaurelhillcemetery.org.
