Ancient Burying Ground

One of the oldest historic sites in Hartford, the Ancient Burying Ground is an important landmark in the city. Between the years of 1640 and 1810, approximately 6,000 city residents were buried there. Among those individuals are Samuel Stone – Rev. Thomas Hooker’s traveling companion whose native town in England gave Hartford its own name.

The Ancient Burying Ground is open to the public and guided summer tours of the graveyard as well as the historic Meeting House are offered to the public. For more information please visit the website www.theancientburyingground.org.
