Following the Freedom Trail through Boston, we found several historic cemeteries that date back to the time of the War of Independence. One of these is the Granary Burying Ground. Located in Park Street, not far from Boston Common and Park Street Church with its unmistakable high white steeple, here you can find tombs dating back to 1660. It's a small area of peace and quiet that will take you away from the hustle and bustle of the city center. Famous revolutionary figures like Paul Revere and John Hancock are among those buried here.
Copp's Hill Burying Ground, a cemetery on a hill, is a key point on the Freedom Trail. From this hill you have a strategic view of the port of Boston, and it was here that the British placed their artillery for the Battle of Bunker Hill. The house right in front of the entrance to the cemetery is the narrowest house in Boston, just 3 meters wide!
