Mount Auburn Cemetery is a favorite with bird watchers and is a beautiful place to explore in any season. The first landscape cemetery in the United States it opened in the 1830s. Many Massachusetts notables are buried here.  Tours and talks are held regularly that highlight the history of the cemetery, the landscape, the wildlife and the amazing sculptures and monuments that can be found here.

Mount Auburn Cemetery is a favorite with bird watchers and is a beautiful place to explore in any season.  One of the things I love is reading epitaphs on tombstones.  Here's one of my favorites:

"Here at rest lies Mary Proctor
Had a cold; wouldn't doctor.
Couldn't stay.  Had to go.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow."

I could see myself living here.

Liz - I used to live on Aberdeen before moving west. They started building these lofts right after we left - I was always curious about them. Great area, and a nice summary for folks in Cambridge looking for lofts. Buyers should know to call YOU!

Hi Andrea ~ Me too! This one turned out really nice. The high ceilings, enormous windows, exposed brick, etc. make for some great spaces.

Hi Mike ~ I've loved cemeteries since I was a little kid. Love that epitaph! Mount Auburn Cemetery is really a magical place.  A few years after it opened it had more annual visitors than Niagara Falls. And it's only gotten prettier over the years.

Hi Jeff ~ I didn't know you lived on Aberdeen.  I did rentals for four months back in 2000 and ended up finding tenants for three apartments just on that one block. They called me the "Queen of Aberdeen". It's a great street.

What an interesting looking building. The details are similar to some Frank Lloyd Wright work!
