“A Peaceful resting place”
Review of Hancock Cemetery

Hancock Cemetery
Ranked #5 of 22 things to do in Quincy
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 31, 2013

We searched for ancestral graves in the Hancock Cemetery while in Quincy. The setting is right downtown in Quincy close to the national park office and places to eat. It is so interesting to view and read inscriptions on historical graves and this is a lovely and peaceful resting place. John and Abigail Adams' family members are buried here along with many other notable patriots.

We strolled through this historic cemetery in about 30 minutes. There are many tombs built into the sides of the what look like man-made mounds along the perimeters of the cemetery. They seemed to be family plots perhaps. We noted the graves of many children, some from well-known family names associated with the area. The inscriptions and art work on the stones are pretty cool if you are a history buff.

Walking through this peaceful old cemetary was like revisiting history. The names on the simple stones jumped out at us--so many heroes of the revolution and early colonial history. This is a beautiful place to pause during your tour of revolutionary Quincy to drink in the feeling of peace and national pride that this place represents.

As old as this cemetery is, it is well kept and maintained. Even though it is right in the middle of a busy city, it is a beautiful and quiet spot, soaked through with history.
