The Gateway to Forest Hills Cemetery

Charles W. Panter of Brookline designed the monumentally impressive gateway, which was completed in July 1865. Built of Roxbury puddingstone and buff sandstone with two conical spires and a central stone pediment, it has flanking square gatehouses with steeply pitched sandstone roofs. Above the central gate is the biblical inscription, “He that keepeth thee will not slumber.”
