Granary Burial Ground, Boston


The Granary is one of the cemeteries that is on my list of places to go before I die. This is one of Boston's most popular tourist destinations. It is the final resting place of Paul Revere, as well as many other men from the revolutionary time.
There are many stories to be told here...but here is a modern one: A tourist fell into the entrance of a tomb that was long forgotton. The news story doesn't say who the tomb belonged to, that is my research for another day. But as I read this I realized I have a postcard in my collection from the cemetery.Please enjoy the story and my 1910 postcard. http://www.boston.com/news/local/breaking_news/2009/02/tourist_steps_i.html?p1=Well_MostPop_Emailed1

The Boston area truly is one of the greatest places for cemetery fans. One of the things I missed most when I moved away was Mount Auburn Cemetery. I really enjoy the writing and photography on this blog. If you wish, please drop by the Graveyard Rabbit Afield and pick up a Kreativ Blogger award at http://gyrabbitafield.blogspot.com/.
