Hallowed Ground

The Old Granary Burial Ground is the third-oldest cemetery in Boston and historians estimate that more than 5,000 people are buried in it (though there are only around 2,300 gravestones). Three signers of the Declaration of Independence (Samuel Adams, John Hancock, and Robert Treat Paine), as well as Paul Revere, are buried in the cemetery.

The burying ground also holds the ashes of the American casualties in the Boston Massacre. The Granary Burying Ground is an important part of Boston's heritage and is a testament to the history surrounding the city's place in American history.
