“Cemetery with Major History”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

Old cemeteries are wonderful, and this one doesn't get much older for this country. Paul Revere, Sam Adams, and many of the Sons of Liberty are buried here. It's a surprisingly quiet place in downtown Boston, a must for history nerds.

“Nice quick stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

Nice quick stop to check out some signers of the declaration. I like old cemeteries they seem very peaceful and just different. Especially how time treats them.

However if your on the Freedom Trail tours you will stop here, so no need to try to go out of your way to visit it, even though it is about 2 minutes from Boston Common area and faneuil Hall.

“Quiet place to explore”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013

This is a small usually quiet place tucked into down town. Take time to explore and find the headstones of famous people. Note the church next door. It's one of the places explosives were hidden during the revolution.

“Boston rich in history”

I have visited this site many times. It is one of the historic places on the freedom trails. No matter how many times you visit it is still exciting.

“Interesting and super old”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2013

I love the history of Boston and this is one of the places that is tucked away but is a must see. And really, Mother Goose is buried here. Who wouldn't want to stop by.
