Granary Burying Ground, Boston: 31 reviews and 73 photos

The Granary Burying Ground is an old cemetery in Boston dating back to 1660. The Cemetery has many olfd graves and headstones of famous historical figures such as: Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, John Hancock, James Otis, Peter Faneuil and Benjamin Franklin's parents. Many victims of the Boston Massacre are slo buried in this cemetery.

I am not a big fan of cemeteries or walking around people's graves. My wife on the other hand loves cemeteries so I indulged here and waited outside the gate as she wandered through the cemetery exploring the headstones.
