  • Historic cemetery in the Auburn area. Quite a few notable Americans are buried here. I came on the recommendation of the park rangers at the Harriet Tubman House. The cemetery is very well maintained and in a very safe neighborhood. I definitely recommend a visit if you are interested in local history or paying respect to the great Americans who have gone before.
  • Another fabulous old cemetery in upstate New York. Great for a quiet walk. Make sure to say hi to Harriet Tubman.
