The Old Burying Ground, Kingston’s first cemetery, occupies part of the land granted in 1721 by Major John Bradford to the people of the North Precinct of Plymouth, which became the Town of Kingston in 1726.  We have a few lists of  those buried here, as well as a plat of the Old Burying Ground adapted from a 1997 Eagle Scout project poster.

In 2019, the Kingston Historical Commission initiated a master planning project to guide future preservation activities. In 2020, the report was completed, and is available here.
