Blossom Hill Cemetery, in Concord, Merrimack County, New Hampshire, is about 61 acres in size, with a roughly trapezoidal shape on the west side of North State Street, about 0.2 miles north of the commercial downtown area of the city. There are two entrances, one near the southern end and one near the northern end. The terrain generally slopes upward toward the west, with the oldest developed portions of the cemetery at its highest points. The circulating pattern consists of winding paved and gravel roads, laid out to follow contours of the terrain, and grassy paths between the rows of gravesites. Special areas of the cemetery include the Beth Jacob Cemetery, laid out in 1948 for Jewish interments, and a section containing a memorial to the Grand Army of the Republic, honoring the city's Civil War dead.[3]

The cemetery was founded in 1860 and was the city's second, after the Old North Cemetery. It was designed by John C. Briggs, who died at the age of 41 and is buried here. The cemetery is the final resting place of city and state leaders, including four governors.
