“A great place to relax”
Review of Homewood Cemetery

Homewood Cemetery
Ranked #70 of 195 things to do in Pittsburgh
Attraction details
Reviewed 9 August 2017

After a busy morning at the Frick Museum, we adjourned to the final resting place of tge Fricks and many other Pittsburgh industrialists and citizenry. It is a huge picturesque cemetery, located adjacent to Frick Park. It has everything a picturesque cemetery should have, winding drives, trees, picturesque vistas, imposing mausoleums, artistic markers, and plenty of famous people. We found a place under a tree for a quiet afternoon of reading and penny whistling. A perfect place for it.

Homewood cemetery is a beautiful, hilly, lawn-park cemetery with amazing art and history. Impressive mausoleums, huge old trees, sculptures, wildlife. This place is a gem in the city. I go for long walks here in all seasons. I often see deer, turkey, groundhogs, and squirrels.

If you must be interred in the Greater Pittsburgh Area, look no more!! Conveniently located in the east side of Pittsburgh, it offers something for everyone. Ample park, really quiet, with lots of big trees and chirping birds. Just idyllic...

My husband has family on his father's side buried here so we visit often. We find it to be a nice place to walk. Just remember where the car is parked as this cemetery is huge!

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.
