Old Burying Ground Commission
Printer-Friendly View

The Commission is responsible for:
  • the preservation and protection of Groton's Old Burying Ground
  • overseeing all repairs to stone markers
  • issuing permits for gravestone rubbings
  • educating the public about the Burying Ground
An on-going effort has been undertaken to establish a computer database of all stones, with information as to their condition, artistic importance, and historical significance. A digitized map will be developed.

The Commission was formed in March 1991 when Selectmen approved regulations governing the Old Burying Ground. In April 1991, Town Meeting voted to accept the state Gravestone Enabling Act (Chapter 272, S73A), which enables the Commission to remove a stone marker for repair.
