Granary Burying Ground, Boston: 31 reviews and 73 photos
Boston has a number of old cemeteries that are, without doubt, quite necessary stops on anyone?s tourist agenda. No, I?m not macabre, but you have to remember that Boston is quite an old city for British North America, and you are unlikely to be able to see European grave sites as old as these in many other places in North America. The Granary Burying Ground is a great cemetery to visit, as it is adjacent to the Park Church (which is at the start of Freedom Trail) and because it is ?home? to a number of famous Bostonians? graves. You can see here the tombs of Paul Revere, John Hancock, Samuel Adams (more than just a beer, he was a Patriot and signer of the Constitution) and the tombs of the Franklin family, although Benjamin Franklin is buried in Philadelphia, not Boston. The Burying Ground is open to all and free of charge, so you can wander at will and take pictures of interesting monuments. Rubbings are not permitted, but in truth few gravestones are still in a state that would produce anything interesting if they were rubbed.
Address: Boyleston Avenue
