Bigelow Chapel

With its soaring spires of Quincy granite, Bigelow Chapel offers a grand setting for your ceremony. Dr. Jacob Bigelow, one of the founders of Mount Auburn, designed this Gothic Revival structure in the mid 1800s. The imported stained glass windows, recently restored, add vibrant color to the chapel’s interior.

Rows of wooden seats inside the chapel can accommodate up to 75 guests.

For additional information and photographs, please see our post on Weddings at Bigelow Chapel.

Bigelow Chapel Lawn

Choose the grassy expanse in front of Bigelow Chapel for an outdoor ceremony or for picture taking after a ceremony in the chapel. Surroundings include Victorian-style plantings and the Cemetery’s famous Sphinx statue.

Asa Gray Garden

Located just inside the Cemetery’s signature Egyptian Revival Gateway, this lovely circular garden is named in honor of a world-famous botanist. It features vibrant groupings of flowerbeds and a perimeter of spectacular tree specimens. The focal point of the garden is a small spray fountain.
