Old Burying Ground is owned and managed by the Town of Littleton, MA.

History

Old Burying Ground was established in 1721 as the Town of Littleton's first cemetery. Prior to this, locals buried their dead on their own property. The exterior walls were created in 1748. By 1909, the last burial took place here.

Westlawn Cemetery, also located in Littleton, was established in 1801 for use as a paupers cemetery. By 1900, when Old Burying Ground became full, Westlawn became the town's primary cemetery.

The old burying ground received relatively little attention during the early part of the twentieth century, until when 1939 an appropriation was made for tree removal and monument repair necessitated by a major hurricane in fall 1938. The national bicentennial of 1976 prompted another round of improvements, including a historic marker, followed by ongoing efforts to preserve and restore the cemetery. Since 1991 a series of regular stone conservation workshops have been held to increase public awareness and repair damaged stones.

There was reportedly an earlier burial ground, that pre-dated Old Burying Ground, known as the "ancient cemetery" or "Nashoba burying grounds", located on the Nashoba Plantation near the base of Nashoba Hill but it was later plowed up and cultivated as part of a working farm so nothing remains of it.
