This cemetery is actually a history tour, with such gorgeous mausoleums, statues, crypts and tombstones. Many well known figures from Pittsburgh's past are buried here, and the grounds are very large and well kept.

Great place to see beautiful examples of architecture even if it is a cemetery. You never know who you will find buried here!

Homewood is a beautiful, peaceful (duh!), hilly cemetery near the universities. You can see how the rich folk honour their dead -- interesting designs and ornaments.

I too visited the cemetery after my sixth visit to the Frick House. It is very hard to imagine being able to see Martha's grave from the house with all the growth that has taken place since the late 1800's. Millionaire's row is like viewing a miniature city with all the mausoleums. The staff in the office was very helpful... More

It's strange to have a cemetery available for review....but ok. This is a beautiful final resting place, where members of the Frick and Heinz families are buried. For sports fans, Pirates Hall of Fame 3B Pie Traynor is buried here.

I know it sounds weird, but if you like history this is the place to go. You will see the graves of popular well known people from the Pittsburgh area. You can walk around for hours and never stop being amazed.

I was prompted to visit Homewood Cemetery after a recent tour of the Frick family mansion, Clayton, in Point Breeze. During that tour, we were told that Mr. Frick chose a spot in the cemetery where he could see the grave of his beloved daughter Martha, who died as a young child, from the top story of his home.

It may seem like an odd choice for a walk but the Homewood Cemetery is full of history and architecture you will see no where else in Pittsburgh. I love the array of angel statues that are there and the mosoleums are bigger than some apartments I lived in. Be sure to take a camera along.
