While many people assume they have a pretty good idea of the city of Boston, there are a few spots they may be missing out on. Here’s a list of some of Boston’s lesser-known, unconventional and unusual places that are definitely worth checking out.
Boston’s beautiful Victorian cemetery has a unique, little secret. Unlike any other cemetery, it houses a unique, miniature village. The village was added to the cemetery in 2006 as a part of an exhibition.
While explaining the project Christopher Frost, the artist behind the tiny houses, said:
“Each concrete building is a replica of the home of a particular person buried at Forest Hills. I chose structures from the thousands of possible residences in order to include a variety of architectural styles. Just as the houses’ architecture reflected the diversity of their occupants’ background, social status, ethnicity, and other traits during their lifetimes, so the architecture of their monuments and grave sites reflects those traits after their deaths.”
Surrounded by a serene lake, the cemetery features natural and man-made beauty both.
