What grows behind that wall?
By the 1830s, cities were stuffed with mouldering graves. The problem of overcrowded churchyards gave rise to a pleasing solution: the rural cemetery.

Mount Hope Cemetery, Bangor, ME, was the second of its kind in the United States. Follow me to see what grows behind that garden wall.
