Overview

The nation's first garden cemetery, Mount Auburn Cemetery has been a popular spot since the Victorian era. Graves dating back to 1831 include the final resting places of Mary Baker Eddy, who was the founder of the Christian Science Church, poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes and painter Winslow Homer. There are as many species of trees as can be found at an arboretum, and it is a favorite area for bird-watching. Views of nearby Lake Halycon add to the atmosphere of serenity and placidness.
