Mount Hope Garden Cemetery is not only a sculptured final place of rest in a wonderful garden setting, it is a place of history. It includes the first memorial built in the US to honor Civil War dead. It houses Hannibal Hamlin, Lincoln's vice president. It includes a beautiful memorial to those who died and are MIA in the Korean War. It also has a wonderful memorial to the First Maine who saw action in the Civil War. Each of these contain a history lesson. Hint: Stop at the Superintendent's Office on your left as you enter past the Second Maine Memorial and pick up a "walking Tour" guide that describes the different points of interest. Most can be arrived at by vehicle as well. Also, if you have an elderly parent, take them on this journey for if they have served in the military, they will be very impressed.
