Home 9 For fun 9 Can you guess 4 signers of the Declaration of Independence buried in Massachusetts?

Boston Stone Restoration has worked on many memorials, gravestones and crypts over the years, restoring the marble and granite that mark key moments in the development of our country. As a result, we’ve stumbled across a lot of amazing history. So for our July 4th post this week, here is a little bit of local trivia related to the Declaration of Independence rooted right here in Massachusetts.

We celebrate Independence Day on the Fourth of July every year to remember the signing of Declaration of Independence and the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation. Did you know that 4 of the signers of the Declaration of Independence are buried in Massachusetts?

Do you think you can guess all four? Here are some hints:

1) One would become the second president of the United States.
2) Another was a wealthy merchant known for his style with a signature to match.
3) A third was a prominent lawyer and social reformer with a summer house in Waltham, MA.
4) The fourth was a raucous community organizer and the namesake for a company that kicked off the American craft beer revolution too.
