  • Burial Hill is a historic cemetery or burying ground on School Street in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Established in the 17th century, it is the burial site of several Pilgrims, the founding settlers of Plymouth Colony. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2013. A network of paved footpaths are laid out through the cemetery's 5.1 acres, with stairs located along steeper sections. There are more than 2,000 marked graves, dating from 1680 to 1957.
  • The history was really cool, but it's sorta sad what disrepair the cemetery is in. There is no map to the significant grave sites, paths are falling apart, multiple grave stone have fallen, and so on. It was disappointing and not a great experience.
