  • One of my favorite cemeteries in the state. Lots of old graves with some really interesting inscriptions. Too bad about the graffiti though. It's a great place for a quick stroll during lunch.
  • In the summer (July/August), there are well-informed middle school children who provide free guided tours.
  • Being open to the public great, not being constantly watched, not so great. Witnessed shady activity several times on different days and times. This place shouldn't be known as the place drug dealer X sold to drug buyer Y. Need some eyes on this place more often.
  • So rare that a cemetery is preserved in the heart of a city. Some of these are really old, back to the beginnings of the city.
  • Historically known in center of Hartford
