Holyhood Cemetery is a cemetery located in Brookline, Massachusetts. Laid out in 1857, the cemetery was designed to reflect the rural cemetery movement begun at Cambridge's Mount Auburn Cemetery. It was the first such cemetery in Brookline. The cemetery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985. Most of the cemetery has the layout typical of rural cemeteries, with winding lanes and attractive landscaping. One section, known as the "German Acre" and located near the entrance, has a more traditional rectilinear form; it was laid out for a congregation of predominantly German Catholics. The cemetery chapel, built 1859-62, is set on a hill near its center, and was designed by Patrick Keely, a noted architect of Catholic churches. It is a Gothic Revival structure, built out of puddingstone.
