Located in Barre, Vermont, the “Granite Capital of the World,” Hope Cemetery serves not only as a place to remember those who work outside the craft and are buried there, but also as a tribute to the stone cutters and artisans interred amongst the sculptures they created while they lived.
After seeing how granite is quarried and carved, go see this wonderful cemetery, full of memorials made for their own families by loving hands of stone carvers. Unique pieces, story telling memorials. A museum of stone art.
Beautiful Marble Works in the Hope Cemetary that date back decades to the late 1700's
From TripAdvisor: This is more like a sculpture garden than a cemetery. The excellent granite craftsmen of Central Vermont showcase their skills and imagination here, many of them carving their own memorials. You can find a soccer ball, a race car, A plane, a carved chain, a couple in bed, a cello…
One of the most famous cemeteries in the US. Interesting monuments both historical and modern. Free.
