I decided to take a stroll at Mt. Hope to learn some history of Bangor. I recognized many names and the grounds were immaculate. Great place to learn some local history.

I took a tour of the cemetery through the Bangor Historical Socirty. It was very educational. any of the people buried there made enormous contributions to the growth of Bangor and neighboring communities. The tour lasts about 1.5 hrs and is a walking tour.

Great walking paths that are safe even if walking alone. The paths are very clean and if you're a history buff, there is a lot to see. The kids love seeing the ducks and turtles and occasional hedgehog.

The gardens of this cemetery are unique-one thinks it must be like this in Eden. there are benches to sit on and reflect, ducks to feed in a pond, and walks to make one enjoy the outdoors.
