That the Bay View Cemetery was established in 1728 and is the third oldest cemetery in Gloucester? The Ancient Burial Ground, also known as First Parish Burial Ground and Old Bridge Street Burial Ground, was established in 1633 and is the oldest cemetery in Gloucester. The Second Parish Burial Ground, also known as the Thompson Street Burial Ground, located in West Gloucester, is the second oldest burial place in the community, having been established in 1716.
I always feel a little sad when I pass this cemetery; it is so forlorn looking. It has a nice fresh sign though.
