Quite large cemetery overlooking the harbor within walking distance of the state park. There is 1-hour parking on a side street towards the back of the cemetery if you are looking for a less-involved visit. We did not take part in the night walk but rather did a self-guided tour. A few places are marked with their significance aside from... More

We walked through the cemetery at night with the Ghost Tour. Very historical but not ghostly. We went back during the daylight and enjoyed reading some of inscriptions on the stones. Located by the court house so you can visit two places easily. Steep stairs to enter the cemetery and the ground is very uneven.

Ive passed by and looked up the hill, but never went. Until last night during a photography group walk. Beautiful and historic sight with great views of Plymouth.

So neat to see the graves of those who founded our nation. Really neat experience for the kids. Stop by William Bradford's memorial.

we went here during the night with a tour....so wish I would have done it during the day as well. The history of this location is so amazing and it's hard to believe they would choose a hill to bury love ones on. A must for all!
