Consecrated in 1855, Mount Wollaston Cemetery was originally 25 acres. The first lot was sold in May, 1856. The design and layout of the cemetery was completed by Dr. William Pattee, Luther Briggs (Surveyor), and Daniel Briggs (Planner). Mr. Daniel Brims of the Forest Hills Cemetery was also instrumental in the design and layout of Mount Wollaston as a "garden cemetery."
The Design Commission also was composed of Luke Rideout, Lewis Bass, Ensign Fellows, H.N. Glover, Joseph Brackett, William Auson, W.T. Morton, and John Glover.

In Mount Wollaston Cemetery you will find the finest examples in the world of "turning" granite, a design technique invented and developed by The Lyons Granite Company of Quincy.

The cemetery is currently comprises 57 acres.

Local historian Tom Galvin regularly leads tours of the cemetery focusing on the Quincy granite industry (granite industry leaders’ graves, notable granite monuments), but also includes Quincy Mayors’ graves, Quincy civic leaders’ graves, and many other historical highlights.
