Winslow Cemetery is owned and operated by City of Marshfield, MA.
Marshfield, founded in 1640 by Edward Winslow, retains much of the character of its pre-Colonial past. Winslow, a shipmate of the Pilgrims who ventured to the New World aboard the Mayflower in 1620, moved north to Marshfield in 1632 onto land granted by the Plymouth Colony Court.
The historic Winslow House still stands at the corner of Webster and Careswell Streets, nearly 300 years after it was built. A true father of his town, Winslow was responsible for Marshfield's first church, school and for organizing its first town meeting. Today he lies buried in a cemetery named for him, not far from the land he settled.
Also to be found buried here is Daniel Webster (1782-1852) of Boston, Mass. who had a colorful history, which ended here in Plymouth County MA.
