I'm a complete Revolutionary War nerd. Always have been. So when I first saw the Granary Burying Ground, peeking in between the gates to see the grave of James Otis, I sort of had a fanboy moment. This is American history. This is where the stories you've read in textbooks come to life. As with the other attractions along Boston's Freedom Trail, the Granary Burying Ground is a must-visit spot.
This part of the Freedom trail the main entrance is non-accessible. You will need to call the mayor office to have the side gate unlock, so you can enter through accessible entrance of the graveyard. There are several singers of declaration of independence including President John Hancock are buried here.
See what famous people are buried in this historical cemetery.
It is a graveyard. What more can I say. Worth the visit though.
