Old Granary Burying Ground

Interesting
Next door to Park Street Church, this burial ground was named for the 17C granary that once stood nearby. Buried here are Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, John Hancock and Crispus Attucks, an African American killed in the Boston Massacre. An obelisk in the center of the cemetery honors Benjamin Franklin's parents.
