The cemetery is beautiful, and home to the graves of many interesting people, such as General Ambrose Burnside and H.P. Lovecraft.

This very large and old cemetery is well kept and well managed. Our family has had a plot here for many generations. The grounds are impeccable and the setting is respectful and pristine. Many historical markers and a good directory search available at the entrance.

This is a beautiful and historical cemetery that offers beautiful waterfront views as well, there are many nooks and crannies to discover, amazing sculptured stones and lovely walkways. I highly recommend a visit if you are in the area. It's beautiful year round.

Beautiful cemetery to wander around and marvel at the variety of ornate graves and sculptures, all the while respecting those that rest here. Some very old graves with interesting inscriptions are a step back in time. I look forward to going back in the Spring...More

This is a very large and very beautiful cemetery. If you walk all the way down the hill you will hit the river. Many people come here to visit the grave of local author and favorite HP Lovecraft. I found myself more interested in the...More

I've seen some things that people leave by a niche. But call the office. They are very helpful and will tell you what is allowed.
