The Oldest Cemetery In America Is Right Here In Massachusetts And It’s Eerily Enchanting

The oldest cemetery in America is tucked away in Duxbury, and it has a crazy history.

Myles Standish Burial Ground is a small cemetery hidden off of a quiet residential road, but its place in history is anything but tiny. This graveyard is full of the mortal remains of the passengers who traveled to the New World on the Mayflower: the Pilgrims. This 378-year-old cemetery is definitely one unusual destination you won’t want to miss.
