    History of Forest Hills Cemetery Walking Tour

    Join Al Maze for a tour examining the history of the garden cemetery movement and the origins of Forest Hills, a generation before Olmsted and grand public parks like the Emerald Necklace. Inspired by Pére Lachaise in Paris, the garden or rural cemetery movement began in America in the 19th century. Learn about this movement as well as the people involved in creating and designing Forest Hills, and hear the stories of some of notable people buried here, making Forest Hills a unique Boston treasure. Meet at the main gate; this is a 2-hour walk over varied terrain. Wear comfortable shoes and bring water.
