Forest Hills Cemetery

Founded 1848. If a cemetery can be romantic, Forest Hills is. Even the name of the Victorian, rural garden-style burying ground sounds like a place for frolicking. Indeed, charming horticulture like tulip trees and sugar maples, as well as historic art sculpture, cover the 250 acres where Eugene O’Neill, Anne Sexton and William Lloyd Garrison lie in eternal repose. Contemporary art and sculpture are spread across the grounds. Poetry readings and concerts are often held in the chapel. Open daily 8:30 am-dusk.
