The craftsmanship on the tombstones in this cemetery is amazing. It’s almost like a museum and well worth a stop if in the area. The city of Barre, Vermont is known as the “Granite Capital of the World”.

Take a nice spring day and just wander, the craftsmanship is amazing. It’s hard to even describe how someone can create art of our granite

You have to do this if you are in Barre. Yes, it is weird to be a 'tourist' in a cemetery but this isn't like any cemetery. This show cases many awesome stones that are actually sculptures of the many talented people in the area....More

Glad we stopped here after a tour of Rock of Ages. There are many old markers and tombs here, and the granite still looks new. Take time to drive through, if nothing else; you will see some unique and beautiful works of art.

I've always loved historic New England cemeteries, with tombstones dating back centuries. Hope Cemetery isn't quite that old, but the iconic sculptures place it in its own category. One could spend a few hours looking at these sculptures and reading the epitaphs. There are also...More

We came here after the Rock of Ages tour, at their suggestion. It doesn't take long to go through and the variety of memorials was amazing. It's worth going if you have the time.

No. The roads are too narrow and it also would be disruptive to mourners who visit the cemetery. Cars may drive through or you can walk.
