Mount Hope Cemetery, Bangor Reviews - Write a Review
We visited this cemetery many years ago and I was simply enthralled by both its beauty, location and history. Burials from the early 1800s, including one that, as mentioned on his grave stone, was a Frenchman who had fled Robespierre's Reign of Terror in France. We love to explore cemeteries and Mt. Hope has been the best so far. Trivia-it makes two cameo appearances in the movie "Pet Sematary".
I was blown away by the kindness shown to me by the staff at Mount Hope Cemetery. They went out of their way to place a stake on my great uncle's grave and kept it their for two weeks until I was able to visit his grave. Thank you so much!
This is where I want to end up in my family's later plot. Beautiful garden cemetery with burials from early 1800's.
