"The History of Northborough, Massachusetts
In collaboration with the publically funded Northborough Cable Access Television, the Northborough Historic Commission and Northborough Historical Society aim to educate the community of the town's colorful history. Stories will range from personal histories to the cultural and economic development since the town's settlement in the late 1600's through today.
"Who is Buried in the First Burial Ground of Northborough, Massachusetts?
As the title suggests, there are unidentified burials in the Brigham Street Old Burial Ground in the Worcester County town of Northborough. Separated from its parent town of Westborough in 1744, and annexed from the Marlborough Plantation in 1717, Northborough's first settlers had lived, worked, and died in the town since the early 1700's. The town's first burial place has only 5 remaining grave markers, but many more unidentified burials can be found at the site. The research I have completed to date has identified probable and possible burials, all belonging to the families of the town's founders.
