Beautiful cemetery with some interesting stones. Very large but easy to navigate. The most well known grave is HP Lovecraft and google maps will direct you right to it.

This very large and old cemetery is well kept and well managed. Our family has had a plot here for many generations. The grounds are impeccable and the setting is respectful and pristine. Many historical markers and a good directory search available at the entrance.

This is a beautiful and historical cemetery that offers beautiful waterfront views as well, there are many nooks and crannies to discover, amazing sculptured stones and lovely walkways. I highly recommend a visit if you are in the area. It's beautiful year round.

Great place to stroll. Swan Point is perfection in the quality of the care that is maintained. Perhaps strange to say about a cemetery especially one this size but a must for those not only who want to find what famous people are buried here...More

Go there. Great for birdwatching in the spring, a relaxing walk, or a little spiritual silence. You won't be disappointed.

Beautiful cemetery to wander around and marvel at the variety of ornate graves and sculptures, all the while respecting those that rest here. Some very old graves with interesting inscriptions are a step back in time. I look forward to going back in the Spring...More

I've seen some things that people leave by a niche. But call the office. They are very helpful and will tell you what is allowed.
