Welcome to Mountain Grove cemetery. This is a classic example of a rural cemetery which was developed in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1831. Designed to be a "get away" from the crowded cities, rural cemeteries were designed with gardens, rolling hills, winding roads, and ponds. Mountain Grove is one of the most beautiful cemeteries I've ever come across and is also the resting place of Tom Thumb and P.T. Barnum! If you're ever in the Bridgeport area, definitely plan a trip to this beautiful cemetery.
