Gardenvisit Editorial

Inspired by Pere Le Chaise Cemetery in Paris, Mount Auburn is a cemetery with the character of an early nineteenth century English landscape garden - with gardenesque planting to suit. Many famous Bostonians lie here, including the man (Charles Eliot) who established, at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, the first landscape architecture education program in the world. His son, Chaarles W Eliot, who worked for Frederick Law Olmsted and planned the Boston Metropolitan Parks System. Mount Auburn is thus a memorial to the origins of America's landscape architecture profession.

    An amazingly beautiful place, especially if you are a fan of huge, old trees. Very hard to find such a collection of trees, many of which are over 150 years old. Many unusual specimens of European beeches. Immaculately maintained, a great place to walk, watch birds, see the stones of historic Americans. We drove from Somerville, a nightmare, but an easy walk from Harvard. Parking is limited, but you can drive through the grounds. Better to walk. Restrooms, drinking fountain, visitor center available.
