Cemetery notes and/or description:
The oldest of the three city-owned cemeteries is known variously as the Centre Street or East Parish Burying Ground, at the corner of Centre and Cotton streets, dates from 1660. It is about three acres in extent, and about 400 grave sites remain. The oldest marker is dated 1672. The Town's only burying place for 120 years, it is the resting place for just about every family living in Newton before the Revolution.

It was one of the first to be included in the National Register of Historic Places as an individual site. It is the most important, the most evocative and also the most fragile historic site in the city.
