Cemetery (Cambridge, MA)


Cambridge, Massachusetts

I have a lot of graveyard pictures – cemeteries are peaceful and full of history, which makes them a joy to visit. Since we are closing in on Halloween, I am only going to post graveyard images until the end of the season. Hopefully, you will enjoy them.

  1. Like Sam, I’m pretty surprised at how compelling this photo is. I think I’ll take a while to study it and figure out why. Nice job.

  2. Hi Kelly. I’m a novelist, and I’m writing a piece centered in Cambridge. My wife is from Boston, and we did a walking tour of the Back Bay and Harvard areas, but missed Cambridge Cemetery. Do you have many more shots of this wonderful old cemetery? Not Mt. Auburn, but the Cambridge one, specifically along Greenough Blvd. I need to know if the wrought iron fence that I often see in photos of this cemetery is intact between the cemetery and the road here… Odd question, I know, but we writers are odd folk. Feel free to e-mail me with any info. Thanks, and I love the shot… got a thing for old gravestones…

    • Hi Chris – thanks for the comment! This most recent trip to Boston didn’t allow for more than a wander past in heavy rain, so I don’t have any other photos of this cemetery that are recent. The last time I had a wander around the specific area was quite a few years ago. I will have to see if I still have that trip’s collection of photos accessible in my flickr. I know I have a bunch of pics from the cemetery in the Common, as well as the ones just up from there, near the State House (I think that is the government building next to the Common?). And, as far as I could tell, the wrought iron fence is still intact, so that detail can be retained in your notes.
      Thanks for stopping by our site!
