Mount Auburn Cemetery easily gets our vote as one of Boston’s most beautiful places. Situated in both Cambridge and Watertown, the Mount Auburn Cemetery breaks the traditional image of a dark and gloomy graveyard by being “America’s first garden cemetery.” It is a combination of a cemetery and a park, with rolling hills that take away all feelings of being in the city.
Having a mobile tour of the cemetery is almost a no-brainer; not only is it absolutely loaded with history and notable residents, it’s 174 acres and a maze of roads and paths. Try finding the likes of Charles Bullfinch and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow on your own!
The app has everything a visitor will need including directions, histories, multiple tours, even cemetery etiquette! These resources are some that one would never expect to find from a cemetery.
