Forest Hills Cemetery

95 Forest Hill Ave

This beautiful cemetery has several Irish items of note, including the tombstone of Eugene O'Neill (1898-1953) , Nobel Prize winning playwright, whose plays explored an Irish-American psyche. The Milmore brothers of County Sligo, Martin, Joseph, James and Charles, famous for their Civil War memorials, are buried here beneath an powerful memorial by their friend Daniel French entitled Death Takes the Sculptor. It is right inside the front entrance. Martin Milmore's Roxbury Civil War Soldier, is also here. The Jamaica Plain Historical Society offers fascinating tours.
