Benjamin Hemmenway Monument
The Benjamin Hemmenway monument is a tall columnar monument showing a lyre on the front, encircled by a wreath of laurel. Notice the broken string in the lyre—a clue that a life has ended, and another popular Victorian cemetery motif.
Mr. Hemmenway was a coppersmith in Boston.
