See Paul Revere's grave, several signers of the Declaration of Independence, and other movers and shakers of colonial Boston...centally located, worth spending 15-20 minutes of your time

It is amazing to see the old grave stones and the motifs on them, the dates, and the many names from the times when the United States was so young. Benjamin Franklin's parents, John Hancock, and Sam Adams to name a few.

In the heart of downtown Boston, this cemetery contains the remains of many Revolutionary heroes and founding fathers of our republic. Walk around and notice the headstones as well as the footstones.
