Washington County Historical Society presents a Rose Hill Cemetery Tour

Ongoing Opportunities

  • October 11 at 2 PM

Founded in 1866 as Hagerstown's first public cemetery with the purpose of providing a place for the burial of all people regardless of race or religion, Rose Hill Cemetery is the final resting place for many notable persons who called Hagerstown and Washington County home. Join the cemetery's Executive Director Colleen Rafferty on a walking/audio tour where she will highlight the most requested persons interred within the cemetery. This two hour tour will feature the history of several of the area's founding families, prominent local business owners, and those who were icons, trailblazers and legends in their own time. With so many notable persons that have come before us, this tour can't be missed! A map outlining the tour route will be provided for all guests. Guests are required to wear a mask and observe social distancing while on this tour.
