  • This beautiful well maintained Cemetery is rich in history. I was very impressed with Maine's dedication in honoring their fallen military veterans.  more »
  • My girlfriend and I passing through Bangor, we decided to take a ride in the film locations based on his bestselling book ... one of my favorites was Pet Sematary!! First impression ... cemetery is really huge! To get to the location of the film you have to climb a lot of stairs ... from the top the view is even more impressive, tombstones of all kinds, very typical American ... In short, perfect setting for the film. I absolutely recommend a visit.

  • The visit of this cemetery was part of a visit to Bangor for a period of 3 hours and it was well worth the detour! Elderly people, children and joggers come together in this cemetery laid out very well, which is rather unique gathering place.

  • We visited this cemetery many years ago and I was simply enthralled by both its beauty, location and history. Burials from the early 1800s, including one that, as mentioned on his grave stone, was a Frenchman who had fled Robespierre's Reign of Terror in France. We love to explore cemeteries and Mt. Hope has been the best so far. Trivia-it makes two cameo appearances in the movie "Pet Sematary".
  • I live nearby, good place to go for a walk.
  • This is where I want to end up in my family's later plot. Beautiful garden cemetery with burials from early 1800's.
  • I was blown away by the kindness shown to me by the staff at Mount Hope Cemetery. They went out of their way to place a stake on my great uncle's grave and kept it their for two weeks until I was able to visit his grave. Thank you so much!
  • It's absolutely beautiful to go walking in Also has a ton of history! Take the guided walk it's totally worth it!
