About Mt. Wollaston Cemetery, Quincy

Consecrated in 1855, Mount Wollaston Cemetery was originally 25 acres. The first lot was sold in May 1856. The design and layout of the cemetery were completed by Dr. William Pattee, Luther Briggs (Surveyor), and Daniel Briggs (Planner). Mr. Daniel Brims of the Forest Hills Cemetery was also instrumental in the design and layout of Mount Wollaston as a “garden cemetery.”
The Design Commission comprised Luke Rideout, Lewis Bass, Ensign Fellows, H.N. Glover, Joseph Brackett, William Auson, W.T. Morton, and John Glover.

In Mount Wollaston Cemetery you will find the finest examples in the world of “turning” granite, a design technique invented and developed by The Lyons Granite Company of Quincy.

The cemetery is currently comprised of 57 acres.
