Mount Hope Cemetery Walking Tour @ Mount Hope Cemetery
Sep 19 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Mount Hope Cemetery Walking Tour @ Mount Hope Cemetery | Bangor | Maine | United States

Learn little known facts about some of Bangor’s famous—and infamous– residents during our 90-minute guided tour. Hear about the importance of symbolism in the gravestones and get a chance to take in some of the city’s beautiful vistas.

Built in 1834, Bangor’s 300 acre Mount Hope Cemetery is the nation’s second oldest garden cemetery. It was designed by renowned architect Charles G. Bryant as part of a national movement to provide respite from grassless urban landscapes. Garden cemeteries were created as much for living as for those who had passed on.

This tour meets at the Superintendent’s House at Mt. Hope Cemetery, 1048 State Street, Bangor.

Best of Bangor Walking Tour @ Bangor Historical Society | Bangor | Maine | United States

Bangor is a city rich in history, mystery and powerful events. Perched on the edge of the Maine North Woods and a one-time important harbor, Bangor’s history is filled with tales of lumber barons who struck it rich from her natural resources as well as shipping magnates and manufacturing pioneers. The Best of Bangor tells the stories of our first settlers, the greatest disaster in U.S. Naval History (until Pearl Harbor), the British Occupation during the War of 1812, the Great Fire of 1911 and so much more.
