This very extensive and ancient field stone lot was discovered by members of the Blackstone Valley Historical Society Cemetery Recovery effort and is currently being researched and recovered to determine who the inhabitants are...At present, there are over 20 separate burial plots visible, but after more clearing and probing, there will be likely many more..It is located on a bend of the Moshassuck River where it feeds into the Butterfly Pond and dam enclosure in the oldest part of Lincoln off of Breakneck Hill Road...Speculation ranges from Native to early Colonial or a mix to a possible Hopkins family Lot...
