This creepy tree is in Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Mass. It sends an almost biblical message, seemingly posing as a giant cross over the cemetery. New England’s cemeteries are home to many early American luminaries such as Paul Revere, Samuel Adams and John Hancock. Founded in 1831, this cemetery has witnessed some history.
