Very nice cemetary. It's pretty big, you could probably walk for hours and still not see everything. We loved the calm of the place.

The Mount Hope Cemetery is easy to locate. Driving through the property is permitted and plenty of roads. The cemetery is large and there are a lot of old stones on the property. It is well maintained

Fantastic location as sun is setting. The hills and small ponds make it one of a kind. Large old grave markers and lots of Civil War participants and monuments.

This is a great place to walk and learn a bit about local history. Take one of the tours given by the Bangor Historical Society. They are well worth the money.

This great historic place is only a couple of miles from the Bangor city center. It has class and is worth taking a look and walking the grounds.
