A Collection of Cemetery Sojourns

Over the past week, Torontoist‘s Carly Maga and Jamie Bradburn profiled some of Toronto’s most interesting cemeteries, uncovering their history, touring their grounds, “meeting” their permanent residents, and finding the best spots in which to hang out and quietly contemplate one’s mortality (or, you know, read a book). What better way to get in the Halloween spirit than exploring the city’s burial grounds? Find all the links to our Cemetery Sojourns—and the history of a now-defunct cemetery—below.
