  • One of the most incredible Cemeteries in the world can be found just over the Pawtucket city limits in Providence Rhode Island off of the very Elegant and stately Blackstone Boulevard where amazing monuments can be seen with some of the most naturally opulent surroundings in every season You will find every kind of time enduring sculpture from every era. Something from the Victorian, throughout the Progressive into the Art Deco and beyond.. Extremely wealthy families have a lot of prime real estate set aside even in the After life as a testament to the fortunes their loved ones amassed in life.
  • Beautiful cemetery. Great place to walk
  • More of a park with headstones than cemetery. A great look back at the grandeur of death in the 19th century. Be aware that taking photos of monuments is officially discouraged, so use discretion.
  • Beautiful grounds. Quiet and peaceful.
  • Beautiful, we'll kept.
