RESTORING INDIAN RIDGE PATH
Learn more about Mount Auburn’s 2-year project to restore the landscape along Indian Ridge, one of our oldest and most significant areas. With more than 15,000 new plants, the project will promote wildlife habitat and biological diversity, while enhancing the site’s natural beauty.
In 2019 Mount Auburn transformed Hazel Path into a new woodland sanctuary. The project equally considered enhancements to our historic landscape, improved habitat for wildlife, and the creation of new burial space. Learn more about this ambitious project below.
CONSERVING THE BINNEY MONUMENT
The 19th-century marble memorial to Amos Binney, carved by Thomas Crawford in 1847, is the only monument at Mount Auburn that has been designated an “American Treasure” by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the White House Millennium Committee. It is considered by many to be Thomas Crawford’s greatest work of art, and it is the most significant monument of its era in the United States. Learn more about the conservation of this significant monument, completed in 2014.
CONTEMPORARY BURIAL SPACE
Staying true to its founding mission, Mount Auburn continues to create new burial space. Learn more about how we create new burial space for today’s families that also enhances our world-renowned landscape.
