There's some history here! We're thrilled to partner with the Bangor Historical Society to present historical walks in Greater Bangor.

Learn little known facts about some of Bangor’s famous—and infamous– residents during our guided tour. Hear about the importance of symbolism in the gravestones and get a chance to take in some of the city’s beautiful vistas.

Built in 1834, Bangor’s 300 acre Mount Hope Cemetery is the nation’s second oldest garden cemetery. It was designed by renowned architect Charles G. Bryant as part of a national movement to provide respite from grass-less urban landscapes. Garden cemeteries were created as much for living as for those who had passed on.

This tour meets at the Superintendent’s House at Mt. Hope Cemetery, 1048 State Street, Bangor.

Space is limited. Please RSVP to confirm your space.
