Topic: Mount Hope CemeteryToday, we made the short ride to the Mt. Hope Cemetery (again, Mount Hope being one of the original Pinnacle Hills of Rochester). After trying to pump water out of one of the old hand pumps scattered throughout the grounds, we visited the grave sites of Frederick Douglass and Susan B. Anthony. By far the most exciting part of the ride for everyone was cruising down (and up, I suppose!) the “mounts” of Mt. Hope. The ride definitely gave everyone a healthy respect for the richness of our history and the steepness of our hills.
