Allegheny Cemetery is one of Pittsburgh’s largest green spaces. As a historic rural cemetery, the landscape features rolling hills and many wooded areas to encourage a connection to nature despite its location within the city of Pittsburgh. It’s a non-sectarian burial ground and home to the remains of recognizable Pittsburgh names like Biddle, Roup, and Negley.
