Trolley Cemetery Tours:
(Seating is limited.)

  1. Trolley 1
  2. Trolley 2

The trolley will depart from the front of the Conservatory. Each tour is identical and will take participants past the grave of Jane Foster, Stephen Foster's wife. From there the trolley will proceed to Stephen Foster's grave.

The group will progress to the Temple of Memories. If time permits we will disembark and view the beautiful Stephen Foster Stain Glass Window.

After reentering the trolley the group will ride past the grave of Marion Foster Welch, the daughter and only child of Stephen Foster.

Notable interns and interesting facts about the cemetery will be pointed out as they appear along the route.


Parking will be available behind the Teamsters Temple across the street from the Gatehouse entrance. If the parking lot is full, please find the nearest convenient parking space.

Hey Mavis

If you are unfamiliar with the music of Hey Mavis, it is time you entered their world of "Appalachian Americana". With banjo, fiddle, upright bass, guitar, kick drum and harmonica, they easily move from a softly orchestrated lullaby to a raw and raucous love song.

Hey Mavis is Laurie Michelle Caner (banjo/vocals/songwriting), Eddie Caner (fiddle/viola), Brent Kirby (guitar/vocals/kick drum/harmonica) and Bryan Thomas (upright bass/Chank-o-matic 6000).
