Pace where Pet Cemetary was filmed

A truly unique cemetery with raised beds, old headstones... so much history to be seen here. A place every visitor to Bangor needs to see .

The park-like setting is a wonderful place for photographers to visit when in Bangor. There are several ponds where ducks, geese, herons, egrets, muskrats and other wildlife can be seen. They are used to people so you really don't even need a long lens. There are flowers and bridges and beautiful gravestones for those not into wildlife photography. It is... More

This place is absolutely worth a visit. My husband and I stopped by here on our last day in Maine. We spent most of our time on the coast and decided to go here on a whim to occupy extra time before our flight out of Bangor. I love cemeteries and this is hands down the coolest, most beautiful and... More

This is the most beautiful cemetery I have ever seen! The peaceful feeling overcomes you as soon as you enter this magical place. You could spend easily a whole day here walking around. There are beautiful ponds throughout the cemetery. It is amazing to see the tombstones on hills, and wondering how hard that must have been to bury someone.... More

Has a lot of history. Steven King filmed "Pet Cemetary " there. You can park and walk so you can view all the parts of the cemetery.

many challenges with walking un hill and down hill. You will get a great work out walking around. It is good because you can change directions at any point! Loved it.

Beautiful old cemetery with many hilly paths where you can go for walks or even ride your bike. The cemetary has many interesting monuments to include a Korean War memorial.

I have had picnics in this cemetery! This is the second oldest garden cemetery in the US and a garden it is! The winding pathways up the steep hill with age old pines towering on the top, the water features with bridges and ducks, the amazing history that lies beneath one's feet..... literally!! There are tours throughout the season that... More
