The history of Newark is told through the stories of Mount Pleasant residents. Meet the city fathers, early mayors and every day citizens that helped shape the history of the third oldest city in the United States. A tour of Mount Pleasant is a journey through the past.
A docent-led tour is an excellent way to tour Mount Pleasant’s 40 acres. Along the way, you’ll see our stunning collection of monuments and hear the stories of those who rest here. Group Tours can be arranged and last approximately 90 minutes. Tours can be adjusted to accommodate your group’s special interests. Please contact the Mount Pleasant Office prior to your visit,
Public docent tours are scheduled monthly. Tours meet in front gates. Please call the office to arrange a public docent tour.
