Mount Feake Cemetery

Waltham's Mount Feake Cemetery, established in 1857, is a wonderful historic spot to visit alone or with family for some fresh air and a heaping dose of autumn color. The cemetery's tranquil atmosphere is a great place for quiet physical activity (walking, jogging, running) or personal reflection and relaxation.

From the premises, it is also possible to view one of Francis Cabot Lowell's still-standing textile mills (located on Crescent Street) alongside the Charles River.

In respect to the property and its owners, please be sure to read all cemetery rules prior to your visit.

The mill in the photo was not a textile mill. It was a watch factory, home of the Waltham Watch Company.
