  • This seemingly endless cemetery on the East Side is a great place to come for some peace and quiet. The many winding and intersecting roads make it easy to get lost in here, especially since there are so many beautiful gravestones and obelisks throughout. There are a couple of paths that go down to the banks of the Seekonk River. It’s nice that they allow cycling here (only at “slow” speeds), as exploring the entire cemetery on foot would take hours.
  • Walk through everyday during the warmer months. Beautiful, pieceful an relaxing. Recently having a repore with the wild turkeys that roam the cematary an they seem to recognize me, so awsome 😀
  • This is an incredibly beautiful cemetery. It just so happens to be where HP Lovecraft is buried.
  • Beautiful cemetery we found driving around after breakfast while visiting from Florida on 07.10.22. We love going into old cemeteries and this one is the most beautiful one. The 200 acres are impeccably kept. The trees are beautiful and having the river there adds to the peacefulness.
  • Beautifully maintained grounds, well worth a visit.
