If you have any interest in old gravestones or American Revolution history, this is a must while you are in Marblehead. You will also find beautiful views.

Amazing beautiful place to visit to reflect on times past. Quiet, with a view of the ocean on one side and a pond where remote control boats are sailed on the other.
