“internationally renowned beauty”
Mount Auburn Cemetery has been designated a National Historic Landmark by the Department of the Interior, recognizing it as one of the country's most significant cultural landscapes. Founded in 1831, it was the first large-scale designed landscape open to the public in the United States. Today its beauty, historical associations and horticultural collections are internationally renowned.
Mt. Auburn Cemetery is simply my favorite cemetery. Some 170 acres of landscaping artistry combined with gothic architecture and gravestones dating back to the 1830's. The monuments are absolutely stunning. Whether you are into horticulture, bird watching, history, a stroll in the park, or are a downright taphophile, this is the place for sure. Some famous graves you'll find here are: Dorothea Lynde Dix, Mary Baker Eddy, Fannie Farmer, Isabella Stewart Gardner, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Julia Ward Howe, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Amy Lowell, & BF Skinner.
Beautiful all year round.
