There is so much history here, you could spend days if not weeks doing research. Pack a lunch and spend the day, also enjoy the views of the ocean from the top of the cemetery.

If you like graveyards or cemeteries, you'll love this one. Being perched on a hill does require climbing steep stairs, but do it if you can. There is a gem at every turn.

Easily accessible by foot from central Plymouth this burial ground is an important part of the 'Pilgrim Story' and site of the fort built by the first settlers.

There's some 2,100 people buried on this hill, and it really is a sight. Not sure if it's the highest point in Plymouth, but you can get a really good view of the city below, and the tombstones that are in this graveyard tell some...More

Homeschooled kids 8 & 10, we enjoyed history and just seeing such old tombs and reading about them. A fun hike.

Very interesting and very old IF you can handle the stairs. If you cannot this is not for you. Very difficult to walk around.

A bit of a climb up the hill but worth it to see the historical graves etc and the view over the bay

Loved this grave site. The history was amazing. Go check out the Howland House first and then search for his grave stone.

Located on the hill overlooking the harbor, the view is quite wonderful. Many of the headstones are quite ornate but you do have to know where to look if you're seeking out a particular grave. The climb up is fairly steep, so not for everyone....More

Probably not, unless you google burial hill and see if there is some help on there. We gave up because we were told the oldest graves were lost. Luckily many of my relatives had moved inland and we found many there. Check... More

I have been there a couple of times, but don't remember any maps or other ways to find any person. It is just unique, the way the wording on the headstones. Or at least it is different from headstones here in Missouri... More
