The Old Burying Ground is located on Green Street in Gardner, Massachusetts (Worcester County).

The Old Burying Ground was established in 1780, and it is no longer active. There are many rows of old gravestones, and most are in good condition. However, like any old cemetery, some gravestones have been damaged. Most of the gravestones are slate, and many have interesting carvings and epitaphs. The cemetery is very well maintained. We visited right before dark, so I didn't get to spend as much time in this cemetery as I would have liked. I will definitely plan to make a return trip.

Many thanks to Ta Mara C. for visiting this cemetery with me!
