About Hanover Cemetery, Hanover

Previous to 1844 the grounds had little care except such as was given by friends and individual owners of lots. On that date, the town passed a vote to “raise a Committee to cause to be built a tomb and to exterminate the bushes on the Burying-ground”; but as late as 1860 the old graves were still covered with heaps of small stones and the low-bush blueberries covered the most of the ground. Since that date, more and more attention has been given to the care of the grounds and now there are few country cemeteries that can surpass our own for beauty of situation or that show greater attention or more modest,
beautiful monuments.
