Swan Point is one of the most beautiful cemeteries I have ever seen. It is so beautiful that the local residents often use the facilities for their morning running and/or walking. It is a truly comforting place for those who have lost loved ones.

I've gone here several times with friends to have lunch and walk around to view the historic stones. Also a nice, peaceful place to read or just think......

We came to Providence for the NecronomiCon Lovecraft convention/conference and of course visited HP Lovecraft's grave. This is a beautiful, garden-type cemetery. The grounds are very well-kept and peaceful.

Beautiful cemetery with some interesting stones. Very large but easy to navigate. The most well known grave is HP Lovecraft and google maps will direct you right to it.

I've seen some things that people leave by a niche. But call the office. They are very helpful and will tell you what is allowed.
