Pittsburgh's tender mercies, respect for its lands, and loyalty to high ideals are more than evident within the gates of Allegheny Cemetery.

Today, Allegheny Cemetery encompasses 300 acres with over 15 miles of roadways and has been the choice of more than 133,000 people as their final resting place. Some had worldwide fame, others were known throughout Pittsburgh.

Together, they make up the Allegheny Cemetery family.

Very nicely maintained historic cemetery. Interesting architecture and grounds, plus amazing amount of deer, ducks and geese for such an urban setting. Great place to explore and walk around. Several entrances with amazing gates and grand entrances. An early who's who of Pittsburgh. Highly recommended.
Absolutely beautiful mausoleums and monuments. Allegheny Cemetery is a nationally registered historic place and has been repeatedly ranked in the Top 10 cemeteries in the USA.
