The Laurel Hill Cemetery annual Halloween Soul Crawl: Haunted History tour will take place Friday, Oct. 20 and Saturday, Oct. 21. The Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University) students created four different stations throughout the cemetery – including at the mausoleum and obelisk – that will feature the vibrant and haunting light shows.
The sixteen juniors and seniors worked on the light shows as part of a class project in two lighting courses taught by Lyn Godley, associate professor of industrial design. The courses are part of a lighting concentration in the industrial design program that was first offered last fall.
The annual Soul Crawl features flashlight tours along winding, dimly-lit paths, focusing on the cemetery’s rich history and the spirits buried within.
