The Ancient Burying Ground



The Ancient Burying Ground is the oldest historic site in Hartford, and
the only one surviving from the 1600s. From 1640, four years after the
arrival of the first English settlers, down until the early 1800s, it
was Hartford’s only graveyard. During that period anyone who died in
town, regardless of age, gender, race, ethnic background, economic
status, or religious faith, was interred here.
