Educational and Guided Tours
North Burial Ground is Providence’s oldest municipal cemetery dating back to 1700 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. With over 100,000 internments in the last 300 years, North Burial Ground is host to numerous notable internments within the fields of business, politics, architecture, public health, art, and more.
