Copp's Hill Burying Ground and Terrace

Against the modern backdrop of the harbor and Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge sits Copp's Hill Burying Ground. One in a long list of Boston’s historic graveyards, the burying ground is home to some of the oldest graves in the city.

The graveyard sits on top of the Copp’s Hill Terrace, a park built by Olmstead and Eliot, that affords visitors an impressive view of the Boston waterfront and Charlestown Navy Yard.

As one of the farthest removed sections of the North End, Copp’s Hill maintains a peaceful and reverent atmoshere where visitors can browse and relax among some of Boston’s most interesting historic artifacts.
