This is the final resting place for Oliver Wendell Holmes, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Charles Bulfinch and some 86,000 others. In fact, the cemetery is now so full that locals who want to spend eternity here often settle for cremation. But there's plenty of life too. There are 4,000 types of tree and 130 species of shrub alone on its 175 acres, and excellent free guided tours to help you distinguish them.
