Hey! Join us at this weekend’s Market of the Macabre at Laurel Hill Cemetery tomorrow, September 7th, from 12-5. We’ll be in booth #53 (and there’ll be Halloween candy, so.. what’s up?)

We can’t wait to see everyone!

Carol Orzel at the Mütter Museum

In keeping with February’s DPP meeting facilitated​ by Beth Savastana about the importance of morbid curiosity in museums, DPP member Shawn Porter spent the morning at The Mütter Museum for the unveiling​ of the skeleton of Carol Orzel- a South Philadelphia native with fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) who bequeathed her remains to the College of Physicians of Philadelphia.

Death Party at Laurel Hill

A group of Death Party Philadelphia members went on a field trip today (04.29.18) to Laurel Hill Cemetery for a guided tour highlighting some of the Egyptian symbolism throughout the bone orchard. For some of us, it was our first time at Laurel Hill but we’ve already got an encore planned for next month’s meeting. Stay tuned for the RSVP!
