Anthony Sammarco, author of more than 50 books on Boston history, leads you on a tour exploring the theme of architecture at Forest Hills. Some of the 19th century's preeminent architects – including William Preston, Gridley Fox Bryant, and Van Brunt and Howe – designed Cemetery's Main Gate, stone bridge, and 19th century buildings as well monuments and mausoleums for wealthy clients. Visit the gravesites of William Ralph Emerson, Harrison Atwood and others.
Meet at the Main Gate. Wear comfortable shoes and bring water; this is a 2-hour walk (with frequent stops) over varied terrain. Admission: $9.
