Bear Hill is notable for being the earliest burial ground in Hopkinton. In addition to early settlers of the Bear Hill district, two colonial soldiers killed in "King Philip's War" in 1675 are buried here, along with fifteen native Americans, and two British soldiers. (None of the very earliest graves are marked; markers for the British graves were stolen several years ago.)
Believed to have belonged originally to the Norcross family, the cemetery was privately maintained by the residents of the Bear Hill district until deeded to the town of Hopkinton in 1868.
The cemetery is 27,200 square feet. There are approximately 180 headstones.
The Massachusetts Historical Commission refers to this cemetery in MACRIS as HPK.808 Bear Hill Cemetery.
This cemetery is referred to as GR2 Bare Hill Cemetery in the "Vital Records of Hopkinton Massachusetts to the end of the year 1849".
