Fairmount Park is offering historic house tours, teas at the houses, and a trolley car ride for lots of money. We will skip the latter and do historic house tours of Strawberry Mansion, then Woodford, and hike the famous Laurel Hill Cemetery.
The exact plan is to park at, then tour Strawberry Mansion, walk Laurel Hill Cemetery, then tour Woodford Mansion. All places are within short walking distance of Strawberry Mansion. Figure each tour should be around 45 minutes to 1 hour. The cemetery walk should take another 1-1.5 hours. The charge for each tour is $5. Cemetery walk is free.
Caution: You should be able to walk 3-4 hours without much of a break.
You should have recently hiked 4 miles in conditions detailed above.
To carpool from Hill House meet at noon. Each carpooler chips in $2 at the start. Email me 3-4 days in advance and receive a reply.
