Second Burial Ground
of Woburn

Montvale Avenue - Woburn, Middlesex, Massachusetts

This is the view from the front gates of the Second Burial Ground in Woburn - June 1999

Originally established by the society of the First Parish in Woburn in 1794. In 1823, the parish took measures to sell the burial ground to the town for $162.50. The earliest dated stones are removals from the older yard or elsewhere. Many later stones have been removed to Woodbrook Cemetery, opened in 1845.

The number of headstones is 350, the number of inscriptions in 1847 counted by individuals was 365. The one with the earliest date was 1789. The number of individuals to 1870 is 388. Some stones have perished due to the type of materials used. Interments here included fathers of the revolution; four victims of the fall of the Clapp house-frame, July 14, 1807, doctors and magistrates.

Soon put a period to my days.
