Just up the road/hill from the Old North Church, you will find Copps Hill Burying Ground. It's Boston's second oldest burying ground founded in 1659 and was named after shoemaker William Copp who once owned the land. It has a lovely view over Boston and it's in an extremely quiet neighbourhood. There are many residential houses looking over the plot, which gives it a lovely peaceful feeling.
Numerous artisans, craftspeople, and merchants are buried here. Additionally, thousands of African Americans who lived in the "New Guinea" community at the base of Copp's Hill are buried in unmarked graves on the Snowhill Street side. More well known people buried here are the Mather family of ministers; shipyard owner Edmund Hartt; Robert Newman, Shem Drowne, Prince Hall, the anti-slavery activist.
If you're walking the freedom trail and are in the area then definitely stop by.
