Cedar Hill Cemetery is one of the early "rural" cemeteries to open in Philadelphia, est. 1849. Small church and parish cemeteries, if not full, tended to be rather austere and affluent families wanted something a little more upscale for their recently departed loved ones. Public cemeteries were certainly out of the question. So, large estate properties outside the city limits were purchased by consortia of the rich to bury their dead. Cedar Hill Cemetery at the intesection of Frankford and Cheltenham Avenues in Northeast Philadelphia is actually four different cemeteries; Cedar Hill, North Cedar Hill, East Cedar Hill (aka Mount Sinai), and Mount Carmel, which is a Jewish cemetery. The other three are interdenominational. The belief hereabouts is that this is the only intersection in the WORLD with cemeteries on all four corners. That's rather far fetched. Please feel free to correct that mistaken belief if you know of another. Some samples below. Full 32 shot series at http://www.ishots.net/cedarhillcem/index_lb.html
