Grave of the Inventor of the Doughnut Hole

The cemetery is located behind the Snug Harbor Elementary School, behind the playing fields. Park at the end of Doane Street. There is a boat launching ramp / boat club to the right. Walk through the gate and into the playing field. Follow the far tree line for about 300 feet to the cemetery. After you visit, go eat a doughnut at the first Dunkin' Donuts in the country [also in Quincy] like we did. Actually, we each ate two.
