  • Pretty solid selection of dead people. Not creepy tho
  • How to find Aaron Burr's resting place? He is on the side closer to the Princeton Library building. He is in a fenced (short) group reserved for President of Princeton University. His father was one.
  • It's a beautiful place except I can't get in
  • Some incredible names dotted around the place
  • Quiet serenity near the middle of Princeton. Historical.
