Name: Granary Burying Ground
Location: Boston, MA
Notable Residents: Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, 3 signers of the Declaration of Independence, many Revolutionary Statesmen.
The Granary Burying Ground was established in 1660 and it is the third oldest cemetery in Boston. It is also one of the oldest cemeteries I have visited inside the United States.
This cemetery is steeped in history and it is fascinating to take a self-guided tour. I did not realize until I read the Wikipedia page on the Granary Burying Ground that there are over 2300 grave sites within the burying ground. In fact, new crypt are occasional discovered as was the case in January 2009 when a woman fell through the ground onto the steps of a previously forgotten crypt.
If you are a student or lover of American history, you owe it to yourself to visit the Granary Burying Ground in Boston.
