The History on the Ancient Burying Ground is the oldest historical site in Hartford, Conn. and the only one surviving from the 1600's.
From 1640, four years after the English settlers arrived all the way through to the 1800's was the only graveyard in Hartford. Everyone was buried their who died in town.
The oldest gravestone is believed to be that for Timothy Stanley, who died in 1648. Approx. 6,000 individuals are believed to have been interred in this graveyard, which originally considered larger than it is today. Over the centuries commercial building, as well as the First Congregational meeting house, were erected on Burying Ground land, making it 4 acres now days. Since gravestones were expensive, the vast majority interred there, perhaps as much as 90% never even had one to mark their final resting place. It has been recorded that in 1836 there were 563 stones present in the graveyard. And in 1877 there we only 526 still standing. Today there are approx. 415 stones left in the graveyard.
