Granary Burying Ground Tours

star-5
1 Review
Granary Burying Ground
Founded in 1660, the Granary Burying Ground is Boston’s third-oldest burial ground, and final resting site of some of the most famous Bostonians to ever walk the earth, including three signers of the Declaration of Independence, Paul Revere, and five victims of the Boston Massacre. With as many as 2,345 graves, few cemeteries anywhere else in the world hold such a high percentage of notable people in such a small space, and for this reason it is routinely featured as a highlight along Boston’s famous Freedom Trail.

Still, there is something timeless about visiting historic cemeteries, and perhaps this is why so many choose to stroll the green lawns of Granary Burying Ground, thinking of the times before ours, and, perhaps, the time to come afterwards.

Notable burials among the Granary Burying Ground include John Hancock (a statesman and signer of the Declaration of Independence), Samuel Adams (also a statesman and signer of the Declaration of Independence), Paul Revere (civil war patriot), John Endecott (first Governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony), Samuel Sewall (Salem Witch Trials Judge) and many others.

The Anne Hutchinson Tour of Boston

star-5
It's been many years since my banishment from Boston, but I've returned, ready to share my beliefs once more! Won't you join? We'll walk along Boston's... ahem... Freedom... Trail from the Massachusetts State House to Faneuil Hall, and I will tell you Boston's REAL history filtered only through Christ's grace. Though this is under a mile in distance if we were to walk straight, I have many things to say and may fall into revelation. Do give your soul 90 minutes to recieve the seal of the Spirit on my tour. I've grown to quite like the accusations of "Licentiousnesse and sinfull Liberty" thrown against me in 1630s Boston, and therefore my tour is for adults only. See you soon...
