This is an excellent complement to a visit to Rock Of Ages. You can easily drive through the cemetery, but it is good to stroll around a bit to appreciate the details. I don't think you'll find a more unique place.

The granite carvings in this cemetery are unbelievable. These artists were incredibly talented. My favorite is an early 1900's gentleman sitting and smoking a pipe. In the pipe smoke is a carved image of his wife. It's hard to imagine these are carved in Barre granite.

Absolutely amazing sculptures in (mostly) local granite. Images you wouldn't have thought possible in stone, such as a bi-plane, two perfect pyramids, soccer ball and sports car. The Hope Cemetery was the highlight of a driving tour I put together through New Hampshire and Vermont, and it did not disappoint. If you appreciate fine sculpture, you owe it to yourself to spend an hour or two here. Quiet and serene, a great place for a contemplative stroll.

Before you go, search the web for "A Visitors Guide to Hope Cemetery" brochure from the Barre Granite Association. The document contains a map and a list of many of the note-worthy memorials and where to find them.

A showcase of the finest the Granite Industry in Barre has to offer. Very large and dramatic headstones . From Angels to Racing Cars. Everyone will find some sculpture that can express their true feelings.
