How to rate cemetaries? If one thinks of them as sculpture parks, then there are others more elaborate - Mt. Auburn for one. But this does have some variety including the stones of the Alcotts, the Thoreaus, the Hawthornes, Waldo and Lydian, etc. For those interested in just paying respects to certain folks, signage could be better. But to get a sense of the town and the place where some of those buried here once played and mused, this gets high marks. We visited after visiting the Orchard House in the early evening - quiet, uncluttered, capping a great day in town.
