We were a bit bored one day so stopped at this cemetery to see how old the headstones were. It was so fascinating to see family plots of the early settlers of Cape Cod. It was also great to see some graves marked as Veterans of various wars including the Revolutionary war. Very interesting and not at all creepy.

I love taking my dog here to walk. It is a relaxing little graveyard and there are information packets at the entrance with very interesting information. There are cool headstones here.

It was humbling to walk through this cemetery where the earliest settlers on the Cape are buried--including 3 who came on the Mayflower. And it probably goes unnoticed for most traveling Rt. 6.

Step back in time with this burying ground. 3 graves are for people who came aboard the Mayflower. Self-guided but documentation is available.

Small old burial ground that is on the national register of historic places. 3 Mayflower passengers buried here. Www.capcodgravestones.com Look for constance Hopkins snow, Giles Hopkins and Joseph rogers.

It required a lot of research to know what I was seeing and who these people were, but without their lives, our country would be very, very different.

A simple graveyard for some of the earliest settlers of this country. Stones are eroded by weather but most are still readable.

The Mayflower people are buried here, my great and some more greats are there. New tombstones have been added in the ensuring years, some of the original stones are still there, impossible to read but still there. A quiet setting along route 6, a nice place to stop get out of the traffic and let your mind travel back to... More

The Cove Burying Ground is the final resting place for some very notable people. Three were passengers on the Mayflower. Although the Mayflower passengers landed at Provincetown and then at Plymouth, some returned to the Cape and lived in Eastham for the remainder of their days. Other early founders of the Town of Eastham also rest here. The Burying Ground... More
