Cemetery notes and/or description:
Extremely significant as an early burying ground, the South Burying Place was one of the two cemeteries established by the town of Concord shortly after its founding in 1635. For decades, however, all burials were made in the Hill Burying Ground near the first meetinghouse on the ridge east of the Mill Brook.

The South Burying Place is the smallest of the public cemeteries in Concord. It features closely packed gravestones arranged in ragged rows facing southwest. Most graves have both a headstone and footstone.

The cemetery sits on 1/2 acre. There are approximately 230 headstones. The earliest death date and first burial is 1697 and the latest is mid-19th century.

This cemetery is referred to as GR2 in the "Vital Records of Concord Massachusetts to the end of the year 1850."

The Massachusetts Historical Commission refers to this cemetery in MACRIS as CON.800 South Burying Place - Main Street Burying Ground.
