Mount Auburn Cemetery.

Bree Harvey, Mount Auburn Cemetery’s vice president of cemetery and visitor services, recently showed WCVB Channel 5 the cemetery’s African-American Heritage Trail. The Chronicle City Savvy Quiz segment aired on July 1.

Among the more than 100,000 people for whom the cemetery is their final resting place, there are freed slaves who made a life in the Boston area, the founder of the NAACP and authors.

The trail was created about 10 years ago. See more details on the Mount Auburn Cemetery website by clicking here.

  1. Lovely segment and thank to Bree for pointing out that part of Mount Auburn Cemetery is in Watertown. That’s over 90% of it in Watertown (in case Chronicle reads this).
