These distinctions have earned the cemetery a place on the National Historic Landmarks, one of nine landmarks within the the city of New Haven. Today this urban landmark welcomes visitors with beautifully landscaped pathways that wind through a geometric pattern that mimics the nine historic squares in the downtown area. Pay your respects at the graves of Eli Whitney, inventor of the cotton gin, or Noah Webster.
