Eastern Cemetery Walking Tours

Hallowed? Not officially. Historic? Absolutely. Haunted? You decide. Visit the cemetery’s unique field of underground tombs, the oldest gravemarker from 1717, the final resting place of the famed Captains of the 1813 battle between the Boxer and the Enterprise, and the interesting carvings of Portland’s first stone-cutter, Bartlett Adams. Tours include early gravestone art, important local historic figures, Portland’s historic events, and the landscape of this National Historic Landmark.
