South of the Bridge: Lau­rel Hill’s most re­mote, south­ern por­tions — and the many no­table sto­ries, in­tri­cate stones and peace­ful sur­round­ings that com­prise it — of­ten go un­ex­plored by the traditional visi­tor. As dusk ap­proaches, tour at­ten­dees will have the op­por­tu­nity to ex­plore the many hid­den gems and lit­tle­known se­crets of Lau­rel Hill’s south­ern­most sod.
