Carved In Stone: Historic Marker Inventory

The Ancient Burying Ground - Hartford's Oldest Historic Site

In 2021, the Ancient Burying Ground Association embarked on a grant-funded project to build a photographic database of gravestones, markers & monuments. This project included high resolution photography of the stone, markers, and monuments found at the Ancient Burying Ground. In addition, the database features transcriptions of what appears on each marker (to the degree possible), including names and dates of death.

The final report for Phase I is included here:

A fully searchable & downloadable database of images is available online

This project was funded in part by the Connecticut State Historic Preservation Office of the Department of Economic and Community Development.
