Mount Hope Cemetery, located on Mount Hope Ave, was founded in 1838 as a City Cemetery and is the final resting grounds for many important historical figures, such as Susan B Anthony, Frederick Douglas, John Baker, John Jacob Bausch, Henry Lomb and many more. Now almost 170 years later, the cemetery has fallen into disrepair. Many graves have been destroyed or fallen over due to ground shifts. Many mausoleums have been defiled and many graves have been desecrated with graffiti. Trash is left all over the cemetery and includes condoms, beer cans and paper. The Cemetery is city owned and there is a foundation to repair the cemetery. However, the money is not used to clean the cemetery up and the cemetery is falling further and further into disrepair. If you feel strongly that the City should take action to clean up the cemetery, please sign the petition below.
