Old Granary Burying Grounds

At least 1,600 people are known to have been buried in this tiny graveyard, founded in 1660, and framed by the Park Street Church and the Boston Athenaeum. This landmark cemetery is where founding fathers Paul Revere, John Hancock, Samuel Adams rest in peace. And Elizabeth Vergoose, buried here in 1690, is believed to be the prolific storyteller later immortalized as Mother Goose.

During renovations to the site, Landmark was hired to repair, reset, and patch damaged and vandalized tombs.
