Just a short walk up from water Street. Amazing how hilly it is, cool to walk through time. stop by the court house on the way up or back. Court House museum is free admission.

It was nice to walk through the cemetery and see all the old tombstones. It is also the original spot of the pilgrims fort. The most satisfying thing was walking on Leyden Street, the oldest street in America on our way up to Burial Hill....More

There are some famous dead people buried here somewhere, but we don't know where because their markers eroded away years ago. Skip!! Also the parking lot is under construction (summer 2016) so you will have to find parking on some of the local side streets.

Did a quick couple hours of walking with the family in Plymouth. This was one of our stops. Very interesting indeed. Even held the children's' attention as we looked around. If you're in the area, you should definitely stop by.

If you like to connect the various buildings, monuments, recreations and if you enjoy walking through cemeteries, this is a good one. Interesting gravestones and the burials of some of key founders are there.

Very good place to stop if you're looking to put Plymouth's history into perspective. It is not for those who have a hard time walking because it is a steep incline. There is a beautiful view of the waterfront in the distance when you get...More

Another fascinating piece of Boston's history. Lots of pilgrims and the city's first inhabitants are buried here. The gravestones are old and some are unreadable, some had some very interesting markers and the view of the harbor adds up to a very neat visit and...More

Yep - this is THE one - the place where your pilgrim ancestors are buried (or some of them at least). Be careful walking within the cemetary -- the ground is uneven and not at all accessible for wheelchairs. In fact, you cannot drive a...More

It's neat to see such old gravestones. We were looking for family, in the section they told us they were in, but didn't see any of the stones. Dissapointed but we will be back to hunt for them again, maybe with a little more help....More

I have ancestors buried in this place. I am not sure where they are buried, but the site is filled with historic and storied burials. It also has a fantastic view of the Plymouth Harbour.

Probably not, unless you google burial hill and see if there is some help on there. We gave up because we were told the oldest graves were lost. Luckily many of my relatives had moved inland and we found many there. Check... More

I have been there a couple of times, but don't remember any maps or other ways to find any person. It is just unique, the way the wording on the headstones. Or at least it is different from headstones here in Missouri... More
