National Sailors' Home Cemetery

In front of this cemetery is a granite marker with following inscription:

“This cemetery, the last remnant of the National Sailors’ Home in Quincy, contains the remains of at least 119 veterans of this country’s Civil War. The home, located on 6 ½ acres in Wollaston, operated as a farm for 66 years, from 1866 to 1931. Established primarily for veteran sailors and marines, the home also provided refuge for former soldiers. These survivors of our most deadly war lived and worked together and eventually were laid to rest together in the soil they tilled.”

An in-depth report on the history of this cemetery can be found at the Thomas Crane Public Library (

History is not the only reason to visit this site. The cemetery, near Black’s Creek, is surrounded by beautiful marshland and has lovely views. Access to the cemetery is via the Quincy Salt Marsh Trail (, which is an easy, fun way to explore local flora and fauna.
