Mount Hope Cemetery is located in the western half of this neighborhood. It is really a memorial park and was designed as such. An interesting anecdote is that the wives of both the landscape architect and the owner died right after it was begun and they were among the very first buried here; in fact, one of them was the first. There are sections with memorials in the cemetery, including the Lincoln Garden, which has a half-size model of the Lincoln Memorial. Beyond just being a cemetery, this is an amazing place for a walk just to see all the beautiful monuments that there are to see.
