Mount Hope Cemetery was established in 1834 by the Bangor Horticultural Society to accommodate the growing needs of a booming lumber town. Shortly after it was created, its founders reincorporated as the Mount Hope Cemetery Corporation and proceeded to establish a nonsectarian, horticultural-based cemetery. The corporation began to beautify its grounds, creating walkways, gardens, bridges and ponds--making it the second garden cemetery in the United States and earning it a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. From Bangor mayors, Civil War heroes and a United States vice president to lumber barons and gangsters, the cemetery is the resting place of the city's most colorful and venerable residents. With the erection of monuments and the donation of land, Mount Hope Cemetery also made important contributions to the City on the Penobscot. In the twenty-first century, it remains a popular location for burials and with visitors to its picturesque ground. Join historian Trudy Irene Scee as she celebrates this enduring centerpiece of the Bangor community.

In 1831 a new entity appeared on the American landscape: the garden cemetery. Meant to be places where the living could enjoy peace, tranquility and beauty, as well as to provide a final resting place for the dead, the garden cemeteries would forever change the culture of death and burial in the United States. The ideal cemetery would become one in which ornamental trees, bushes, flowers, and waterways graced the ever more artistic (for those who could afford them) monuments to the dead. Previous to the 1830s, the deceased were buried in church lots, in small and soon overcrowded public lots, and even, occasionally in backyards and fields. Graves were often untended, weeds and decay soon took over, and the frequently used wooden grave markers rotted away. Some turned to a movement emerging in Europe, in which horticulture was starting to become a factor in cemetery planning, at a time in which cemetery planning itself was a novel idea. New England was the first region in America to take up the new ideals. The first such cemetery, Mt. Auburn, opened in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 1831, and Mount Hope Cemetery, in Bangor, Maine, followed in 1834. Today, these cemeteries are both beautiful places to visit and important historical sites. The author takes readers on a historical tour of eighteen of the Northeast's garden cemeteries, exploring the landscape architecture, the stunning beauty, and delving into the rich history of both the sites and of those who are buried there.
