Today is All Souls’ Day, and still on the topic of remembering the dearly departed, I’m writing about a short afternoon trip to the Granary Burying Ground in Boston, MA that D and I made about a couple of months ago. I don’t know much about the history of the United States, but I recognize the names of some of the people buried here like Samuel Adams, Peter Faneuil, and John Hancock.
The serene place is filled with trees and in the midst of it, immediately seen when entering the Granary Burying Ground, is an obelisk. Upon close inspection we read that it was dedicated to Benjamin Franklin’s family.
The Granary Burying Ground is located at the Tremont St and Bromfield St and is walking distance from the Boston Common.
One thing I found peculiar in Boston is that they have a number of old cemeteries in the heart of the city itself.
