  • Beautiful, historic, convenient and cheap - what more can you ask for? This really is a necessary stop if you are doing anything historical in Boston.

  • The Burying Ground makes people feel peaceful… It’s kind of a big land on a hill. You can see the top of Old North Church through this place.
  • Nicely kept historic cemetery in a quiet neighborhood. Only one gate is open, you can't walk through to Commercial Ave.
  • Wonderful place to visit. For those complaining about no bathrooms or staff, it's a 450+ year old cemetery. Pay your respects to the families and leave. It's not a circus attraction.
  • Cemetery that can be visited by walking the "Boston Freedom Trail". Admission is free and you can find explanatory panels that tell the history of the cemetery and some of the people buried there. Since it is a cemetery, respect must be shown throughout the visit.
  • Lots of history as you walk around. Look out for the medal reprinting participation in the Boston tea party.
