This is a very old gravesite that is on the Freedom Trail as one if the attractions. It's well-preserved and you can be in awe as you take just how old Boston is (settled in the early 17th century). The key sites are marked, and guide maps will point you to notable graves. Ideal for history buffs.

Enjoyed walking around and finding the tombs of so many important people to our countries birth and history. Good little map they give you to make finding the tombs easier. Fun little side stop and shaded.

Searching for family ancestors, we had to go elsewhere & buy a book to get a map, even though we had the grave locations. Thank goodness Jimmy Tangent.com was at the gate helping out the hoards of us visiting. Wound up finding 9 of our family in the end, there in the Granary!

The burial sites of Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, Benjamin Franklin's family among so many other figures who shaped our American history. We enjoyed listening to some of the many tour guides to catch bits of anecdotal information.
