Salt Marsh Trail & National Sailors’ Home Cemetery

A half-mile long self-guided nature walk, designed to showcase the major plant and animal species that find their homes in and around the Quincy salt marsh, leads to a cemetery with the remains of US Navy veterans housed at the National SailorsĀ’ Home. The long rows of simple, shaped white marble stones set up a pleasing rhythm as they slope towards the marshland which overlooks Quincy Bay.
