Long the North End's treasured tiny open space, Copp's Hill Burying Ground is home to the gravesites of many of th city's earliest inhabitants as well as more recent ones. The cemetary has beautiful sweping views over the harbour and was used by North Enders to watch the Revolutionary War Battle of Bunker Hill unfold in nearby Charlestown. The British eventually mounted long-range cannons on its heights and used its tombs for target practice until they were forced out of the city. Many of the graves here are well over 200 years old.
