Forest Hills Cemetery

Forest Hills Cemetery Mausoleum

Mausoleum rich in detail and design

Architectural Beauty

Forest Hills Cemetery is located in the Jamaica Plain section of Boston, Massachusetts. Founded in 1848, the cemetery encompasses over 275 rolling acres rich with art, sculpture, memorials and beautiful architecture. Exploration is made easy thanks to the cemetery’s printable Map.

This particular mausoleum captured my attention for a variety of reasons. As you can see, its design alone is stunning. Add to that its idyllic autumn setting and it’s easy to see why my photographic eye was drawn to it.

Other Points of Interest

With a Victorian landscape design that features winding paths, grassy slopes, shaded lanes, and tranquil Lake Hibiscus in the center, Forest Hills Cemetery is truly a special place to visit any time of year.

Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2004, Forest Hills Cemetery is also the final resting place of many historic figures, including abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison, poet e. e. cummings, and playwright Eugene O’Neill.

Beauty exists throughout Forest Hills Cemetery. It’s a place that will make a long-lasting visual impression — even as you drive through the Exit Gate.
