Cemetery notes and/or description:
The Pines Cemetery is one of several in town that are part of the Tewksbury State Hospital legacy, a former almshouse, tuberculosis and polio infirmary, and pauper care facility opened in 1852. There are over 10,000 bodies buried in the Pines, a mere two acre site, with markers lined in rows that are numbered and lettered, row after row as far as the eye can see.

The cemetery operated from 1854-1930, though records for the first 30 years have yet to be located. Many Irish paupers are in the cemetery, as are infants and those struck with contagious diseases. An occasional headstone can be see, or granite marker in the ground, but the primary marker is the metal medallion a cross encircled in leaves.
