Gate Cemetery
Also known as: First Highland Street Cemetery, First Ireland Street Cemetery
Ireland Street
Chesterfield
Hampshire County
Massachusetts  USA

Cemetery notes and/or description:
It is 1 mile south of the Ireland Street/Rte 143 intersection and 3.9 miles north of the Ireland Street/Rte 112 intersection.

A 4-beam gate closes the only entrance. Stone walls surround all sides; in 1935 the front one was cemented into place.

Mrs. Max (Inez Stevens) Lederer transcribed the cemetery in 1940. Many of the markers are either illegible or missing.

During the summer of 2014, Chesterfield cleaned, repaired or reset the markers in this cemetery. In many cases, photos taken in 2009 do not reflect the changes in this cemetery.
Chesterfield also added a sign "Gate Cemetery, National Register of Historic Places, First Burial Joseph Gere, D 3 March 1808 AE 49
