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 too. Very good reads are Bittersweet Heiress and Henry C. Frick ,both by Martha Sanger Frick, the great granddaughter. She recounted the reports of Little Martha's death and funeral and also the funeral of Henry and how his burial chamber was pulled up Homewood Ave..

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. Many of Pittsburgh's other notables are buried in Section 14 along with the Fricks. I expected the Fricks to have a rather ostentatious mausoleum. Instead, they have a cemetery within the cemetery. You can find it near the Brown "pyramid". The Frick plot is surrounded by hedges and numerous members of the Frick family are buried there: Henry Clay Frick, his wife Adelaide, their daughters Martha and Helen (the patroness of Clayton), their infant son Henry Clay Frick, as well as their son Childs, his wife, Francis Dixon, and two of their four children, Martha Frick Symington and Dr. Henry Clay Frick II. Janet of Homewood Cemetery has a wealth of knowledge about the Frick family.

I was unable to locate the grave of Erroll Garner in Section 12-2, although I tried my best.

This cemetery is actually a beautiful, quiet, meditative park.
