Review of Hope Cemetery

This cemetary has everything- beautiful hand carved angels, memorials in the shape of cars, balls, and traditional carvings also. Many skilled granite workers of Italian decent made beautiful memorials for their families and themselves. Go the Rock of Ages Granite Quarries first to learn how the stone is extracted from the ground, and get a book that details many of the monuments at Hope Cemetary

Stone masons from the nearby Rock of Ages granite quarry many of them originally from Italy are responaible for the unique, beautiful and sometimes strange headstones in this cemetary. One has a husband and wife sitting up in their bed, another is a soccer ball, another a Canadian maple leaf and yet another a race car. The intricate carvings that decorate these graves make it more of a museum than what one could consider a final resting place.

This is another hidden gem in Vermont. The artistry in the graveyard is amazing.
