In 1722 Town Meeting-granted Captain Jacob Stevens a parcel of land in exchange for this property which was to be laid out for a meeting house and cemetery. The meeting house was erected but the burying ground was not necessary until 1812. It was then voted to take town land near the meeting house for a burying ground. The cemetery was in use until 1920 but the town found it necessary to open a third cemetery in 1864.

There are approximately 100 headstones. The earliest death date is 1812, the latest 1920.

The Massachusetts Historical Commission refers to this cemetery in MACRIS as STW.801 Hillside Cemetery.
