Copp's Hill Burial Ground
Copp's Hill Burial Ground
Copp's Hill Burying Ground is the final resting place of merchants, artisans and craft people who lived in the North End. Located on a hill on which a windmill once stood, the land was given to the town. Some notables buried in Copps Hill are Fire and Brimstone preachers Cotton and increase Mather and the man who hung the lanterns on the night of Paul Revere's midnight ride, Old North Church sextant Robert Newman.

The grounds are also the final resting place of close to one thousand free African-Americans who lived in a community on the current Charter Street side of the burying ground, called the "New Guinea Community."

Because of its height and panoramic vistas, the British used this vantage point to train their cannons on Charlestown during the Battle of Bunker Hill.
