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.

This cemetery is old school Pittsburgh. I love walking through the entire cemetery spring, summer, fall and even winter. I recognize so many Pittsburgh " royality"

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.
