Town Meetings minutes indicate that the walls, gate, roadway, and well were improvements ,made by the town after 1940.
The Massachusetts Historical Commission refers to this cemetery in MACRIS as DAR818.
This burial place is referenced to in the book "Burials and Burial Places in the town of Dartmouth Massachusetts" by Judith Navas Lund as "Chapter 818 - Evergreen Cemetery".
