Buried Treasures In Mount Hope Cemetery, Rochester, New York (A Pictorial Field Guide)
176 pp. "The 375,000 people buried in Mount Hope Cemetery created the history of Rochester, and their monuments memorialize their contributions to that history. This book resurrects the stories of some 500 of these individuals and depicts their monuments and their meaning. The good and the bad, the famous and the notorious, the rich and the destitute, the creative and the eccentric, the lucky and the unfortunate, are all represented on these 176 pages with mini-biographies and a pictorial kaleidoscope of Victorian funerary art. The book covers the period from the cemetery's inception in 1838 to 2002. There is even a dictionary of symbols and decorative motifs used in 19th- and 20th-century gravestone design."Keywords: LOCAL ROCHESTER NEW YORK AMERICAN HISTORY GRAVES CEMETERY MOUNT HOPE
