Had the opportunity to visit Cathedal of the Pines during a visit to MA. It was something to do, but ended up being an interesting, historic visit. There are several outdoor meeting spaces for services and the grounds are well kept. It's beautiful and peaceful with a mountainous backdrop that takes your breath away. NH and MA have been experiencing... More

Panoramic view of Mt. Monadnock. Beautifully maintained gardens and greenery; foliage is breathtaking in the Fall! Great place for an outdoor wedding, walking the grounds, or some quiet reflection. Museum on site with some very interesting artifacts on display. Such a beauty!

I had never heard of Cathedral of the Pines before and had no clue what it was when we saw the sign for it. I ended up looking it up here on TripAdvisor and realized what it was. On August 22, 2010 our battalion lost two men in Afghanistan, killed in action. I was a Combat Medic in another area,... More

Went there on a Saturday morning. The DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) were there preparing for their annual meeting. We were able to go and visit the alter before their meeting began. They were very sweet. One of care takers, David, explained a lot about the property to us and was extremely helpful and kind. We walked around to... More

Before going to Cathedral of the Pines, I knew that it was a very special place. It was not just an ordinary war memorial. After losing their son Sandy in 1944 during WW II when his plane was shot down, The Sloanes created this attraction in 1946, as a National Memorial to American men and women who lost their lives...

I first visited this beautiful site 53 years ago. It was very inspirational, as tall pine trees formed the "walls" of the cathedral. Today, most of the trees are gone (supposedly due to an ice storm), and the pews are in an open area. The view of the mountains is still beautiful, but the site is no longer merged with... More

There are so many heartwarming reviews. My dad passed away from injuries from WW2 in 1950. I have visited his grave often but when I discovered Cathedral of the Pines I truly rediscovered him. This is like a portal where God, in all his/her names, meets with Mother Nature and those who have died while striving to keep this Peace... More
