Paul Revere, Sam Adams, and Cotton Mather all buried here. A lot of interesting epitaphs on some of these old gravestones. The British had used this area in preparation for the Battle of Bunker Hill and used some of the gravestones for target practice.

Gorgeous, and incredibly well kept. The grounds are in incredibly good condition and I enjoyed seeing the beautiful examples of reliefs from different eras.

Wonderful spot for a quick stop. Beautiful view and wonderful neighbourhood with a great example of an independence era cemetery.

After a bite in the North End, we stumbled upon this gem. There is a wealth of American history here and the first Lighthouse keeper in America and his wife and daughter are also burried here. Highly recommend a stroll through and read some of the headstones...these people made the country we live in today.

Good grief.

It's a cemetery. How can it be a 5 or a 1? It's a wide open space with a bunch of tombstones.

If you're into that sort of thing then go. We walked through and carried on for a cup of coffee.

I you are a fan of history, visit here. As a cemetery, it is neat. As a historic site, it is awesome to think about the battles that took place on and from this ground. It is one of the highest points in Boston which made it a great strategic location during those times. It also means that it a pretty good walk up the hill. It is part of the Freedom Trail.

Relative to other Burying Grounds visited, Copy’s Hill was not as crowded and you were able to actually spend time looking at grave stones and other materials.

The view from Copp’s Hill Terrace is also very nice. In particular, the view of Bunker Hill and the USS Constitution was very interesting. Wish that I would have remembered to bring a pair of binoculars.

This is the 14th stop on the Freedom Trail from Boston Common. It is a small burial ground and was used by the British to train their cannons on Charleston during the Battle of Bunker Hill. Look at Captain Daniel Malcolm's tombstone as it is riddled with the bullet marks from the British.
Also in the same street, on the other side of the road to the burial ground, is Boston's narrowest house at 9.5 feet wide.

Part of our morning tour before we were let loose on the Town was this Historical cemetery, several notable burials which we were pointed to a few of them, of the beaten track but worth a detour to visit.

Used as a vantage point by the British in 1775's Battle of Bunker Hill, it has considerable history. Located on the North End, not far from where we stayed, it was very walkable and we spent time searching for names and dates, using the map posted near the front entrance. The uniquely-shaped and numerous headstones are so weathered by scores of years we found it difficult to read dates, but we were especially interested in the Mathers - a family of powerful religious leaders - noticing their name at other places around Boston, as well. Over 10,000 souls are buried here, and we were curious about the presence of orbs after dark. When we came back to find out, the cemetery was locked, so we remain curious. Overall, it is very much worth a visit because of it's age, appearance, and history.
