This was one of our stops on our self guided Freedom Trail tour. It was a perfect day for a graveyard visit, rainy, overcast, and misty. The reason I gave this four stars is not because of the notoriety of the people who are buried...More
Many famous people buried here including Paul Revere, John Hancock & Samuel Adams. This is a burial ground worth exploring and learning about. It is at the beginning of the Freedom Trail close to The Park Street Church.
This was right across the street from our hotel (Kimpton Nine Zero) and worth the visit. Paul Revere is buried here along with Ben Franklin's parents (among other great historical figures). Take time to read the grave markers.
The second stop on our Freedom Trail tour. Still cant believe the history that we take for granted in this wonderful Country. the guide was super knowledgeable and really made us feel like we were living in the era.
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
There isn't an index at the burying ground but you can use the historic burying grounds website to locate specific individuals. There are no benches from my recollection but it isn't a large burying ground.
