Hillside Cemetery
Also known as:  Sharon Burying Ground

  • Cemetery Hill Road, Sharon, Litchfield County, Connecticut, USA
  • 3,772 Memorials added (42% photographed)

This is the verbiage from the 1903 book "Burying Ground of Sharon, Connecticut, Amenia and North East, New York" by L. Van Alstyne:

"The 'Sharon Burying Ground,' as originally laid out is only a small part of what has since been called 'Hillside Cemetery.' Just when it was first used for a burying ground, or from whom the land was purchased does not now appear."

It goes on to indicate that the First Town Meeting in 1739 makes reference to the old part, which was probably laid out shortly after that meeting.
