Burial Hill
Burial Hill is a historic cemetery in Plymouth, Mass., that dates back to the 1620s, making it one of the oldest remaining cemeteries in America. It sits atop a beautiful hill with views of Plymouth Harbor and is an ideal spot to relax and contemplate the last few centuries of American history.

Many notable historic figures are buried here, including Mary Allerton, the last surviving Mayflower passenger; Plymouth colony governor William Bradford; and Squanto, a Native American guide who played a critical role in the Pilgrims’ survival after arriving in North America. None of the original wooden gravestones remain, but stone markers have been used here since the mid-17th century, many of which still mark the final resting places of the country’s original settlers. The last burial occurred in 1957, and the land has remained frozen in time since.

As a bonus, history buffs will appreciate that the cemetery is situated off of what was originally First Street. Created in 1602, this street is notable in its own right, as there are claims that it is the oldest continuously inhabited street of the 13 colonies.

Practical Info

Located just off of Leyden Street in Plymouth, Burial Hill is easily accessible by car or on foot. While many of the original graves and markers are intact, the site is not very well-maintained. Visitors are welcome to explore the grounds on their own at any time. It’s worth noting that the gravestones are priceless historic works; visitors should not disturb or touch them.
