The Woodlands

This 54 acre Victorian era cemetery was named a National Historic Landmark District in 2005. Today it serves as a picturesque park like area where joggers and walkers can take a break from busy West Philadelphia to explore William Hamilton’s restored stone mansion, view many unique grave markers and find a number of species of birds that live in the trees throughout the grounds. A paved drive leads you around the mansion and through the cemetery, and there is also a dirt trail looping the entire perimeter. The cemetery is easily accessible by trolley routes 11, 13, 34 and 36.
