Old cemetery in the North End Sep 14, 2017
The third cemetery on the Freedom Trail, Copp’s Hill Burying Ground is located just up the street from the Old North Church.

Dating back to 1659, this is Boston’s second oldest cemetery, with King’s Chapel Burying Ground being the oldest. This was where a bunch of people from the North End have been buried. Most notable is probably Robert Newman, who was the one that hung the lanterns at the steeple of the Old North Church.

Compared to the other ones, this one is nothing special, as it does not have any of the big names of history. Still, not a waste of time to visit, as it can be seen very quickly. Plus it is free to enter. Also, a place to sit in the shade during the summer months.

Worth a very quick look!
