In the spring, when the dogwoods, cherry blossoms and magnolias are blooming, this cemetery is very park-like and beautiful. Peaceful, even right next to a busy road. Lots of history to be found here.
Boston is replete with small historic grave sites. We visited several graveyards while touring the city. It is intriguing to stand besides the graves of famous people (or their families). My only caution is, no graveyard is full of lots of famous Americans; at least not the very, very old ones. The amazing part is that these burial grounds still... 更多
After visiting the Adams' homes and United First Parish Church I stopped by this cemetery with headstones dating back to 17th century. Get a free map across the street at the church. Be sure to take the tour of the church to visit the final resting places of the both presidents Adams and their wives.
This is right across the street from the Church of Presidents, which must not be missed, but this cemetery will take you back in time as you visit the graves of soldiers from all the historic wars of this country. You can spend as long or as short a time as you like. It's not a huge cemetery.
After viewing the "Church of Presidents" where the Adams are buried, be sure to visit this cemetery were many other famous names can be seen on the grave markers. The cemetery itself is, sadly, not that well kept up, but it is a very interesting and peaceful place to experience.

Our tour guide gave so much great info other people were stopping to listen. Great feeling of history and a feeling of respect rests in... 更多
I picked up a photocopied guide at the United First Parish Church and took a walk through the cemetery. Though it did not contain the most prominent figures of the Revolutionary time period, it did have some of the less minor individuals and supporting characters. John Hancock is not buried there, but his father is. John Q. Adams is no... 更多
Quincy is going through a transformation in the downtown area and the Hancock Cemetery has had a facelift as well. Many of the old headstones had broken apart and have now been restored. The cemetery is not large and is located next door to City Hall and across the street from The Church of Presidents. Many of the Founding Fathers... 更多
