Visiting the Cemetery

VISITORS ARE INVITED to tour at any time to experience the rich textures and treasures of Forest Hills — one of America’s oldest and most beautiful garden cemeteries.

Visitors are always welcome to come and explore the beautiful landscape and our nationally known collection of memorial sculpture by some of the country’s most renowned artists, including works by Daniel Chester French, Martin Milmore, and Thomas Ball.

Garden of Memories, a fascinating guidebook by Susan Wilson, contains five self-guided tours exploring different parts of the Cemetery.

Forest Hills Cemetery by Anthony Mitchell Sammarco, draws on archival photographs from our own and other collections to tell the Cemetery’s history through the past 160 plus years.

Both books are available for purchase at the Cemetery business office; they can also be ordered by mail.
