We visited the cemetery on Sunday and it currently hidden by construction on Hancock St. When we finally entered the cemetery we were met with trash spewed all over the floor. Empty bottles , paper and even toiletries like a toothpaste tube and such. The...More

Part of your city hall tour is spent in the cemetery. Go to city hall and get a tour and they will guide you through the cemetery too.

Reading epitaphs gives a glimpse into the matter-of-fact, poetic attitude towards death that was held in the centuries...More

In the spring, when the dogwoods, cherry blossoms and magnolias are blooming, this cemetery is very park-like and beautiful. Peaceful, even right next to a busy road. Lots of history to be found here.

Boston is replete with small historic grave sites. We visited several graveyards while touring the city. It is intriguing to stand besides the graves of famous people (or their families). My only caution is, no graveyard is full of lots of famous Americans; at least...More
