Abstract

An article on Bangor's Mount Hope cemetery and park, which is so well planned that even after more than a century, gravestones dot less than half of its 254 acres. It was designed by Charles G. Bryan and established in 1834 and is now on the National Register of Historic Places. Mount Hope is thought to be the country's second garden cemetery, opening three years after Mount Auburn in Cambridge, Mass. With details on animals that can be seen in the peaceful park and notable residents who are buried there.
