About Blue Hill Cemetery, Braintree
In the year 1892, Blue Hill Cemetery was organized by a small group of public citizens for the purpose of serving the immediate needs of the local community. Since then it has experienced remarkable growth due in large measure to the thoughtful planning and foresight of its current Board of Directors. It has been the goal to establish a final resting place in a surrounding of tranquility and natural beauty, away from the noise of the busy city and unlike the weed-grown and overcrowded cemeteries so often found. Famous for its rockery, decorated annually for the Holiday season, and located so conveniently in the heart of the picturesque Blue Hills, just a few miles south of historic Boston, Blue Hill Cemetery has become a familiar landmark to thousands of tourists not only during the Christmas season and Memorial Day but throughout the entire year. Devoted to the cause of perpetuating sacred memories, Blue Hill Cemetery today enjoys the distinction of being numbered among the finest cemeteries in the country.
