Cemetery Stroll At Sumner Street Cemetery

We happened to drive by this cemetery on Sumner St recently and I was surprised to realize it wasn’t one that I had yet visited. I am not sure how that happened but it was a lovely day to cemetery stroll. The Guide to Cemeteries in Essex County, Massachusetts by the Essex Society of Genealogists states that this city owned cemetery has burials as old as the early 1800s up to (nearly) the present. It is currently listed on the city website as “not active”. It’s a small area and very uneven though well maintained (thank you DPW). There’s a stone wall to add to its charm. There are several military markers, mostly I noticed Civil War markers. It does not lend itself to walking through such as with a dog, but it’s still an interesting stroll.
