Hingham Cemetery At a Glance

Adjacent to historic Hingham Square lie 13 acres of open parkland — rolling hills and terraces known as the Hingham Cemetery, which was established 346 years ago in 1672.

The privately-owned cemetery is the resting place of numerous state and national patriots, statesmen, militia, and townspeople who helped build and shape our country.

The grounds encompass Hingham's only arboretum, its only Veterans' burial area, and a Memorial Garden for cremations.

Hingham Cemetery is one of the few historical cemeteries in the United States with burial lots still available for purchase.
