Puritan Lawn Memorial Park is one of the most beautiful properties in Massachusetts, located a short distance north of Boston. Peabody is a historic community nestled on the banks of Lake Suntaug, and is one of the oldest cemeteries along the eastern seaboard.
Puritan Lawn Memorial Park is unique in that it is a naturally beautiful and maintained landscape, with no upright monuments, tombs or gravestones to interrupt the natural flora of the area. Instead, the 140-acre property extends through lush pine groves and alongside ponds utilizes flush-to-ground bronze memorials to mark the final resting place of loved ones.
The property of Puritan Lawn Memorial Park formerly belonged to John Pierce, vice-president of the American Radiator Company in Chicago. Purchased in the early 1930s, Puritan Lawn Memorial Park offers a rich heritage as one of the oldest estates dating from the 17th century. Staff at Puritan Lawn Memorial Park take pride in offering a final resting place for loved ones that looks more like a park or estate than a cemetery property.
The natural environment of the cemetery offers a rich blend of native birds, animals, wildlife and a wealth of scenic beauty, peace and tranquility to visitors. Staff at Puritan Lawn Memorial Park can suggest a variety of burial options, and are open seven days a week to meet the needs of family.
Beautiful landscaping and superb grounds keeping offers one of the most beautiful properties in the area, rich with deciduous and evergreen trees, rocks sculptures, ponds, and hundreds of acres of lush, green lawn.
Located roughly 15 minutes north of downtown Boston, Puritan Lawn Memorial Park can be accessed off of Route 1 (Newbury Street) south of Peabody, Massachusetts. The property may also be accessed via Interstate 95 (Yankee Division Highway). Surrounded by lakes, hiking trails and ponds, Puritan Lawn Memorial Park offers visitors the serenity, tranquility and solitude of a private estate while still being accessible to accommodations and amenities of nearby Boston.
