Rehoboth Historical Cemetery Number 33

Burial Place Hill is located on Peckham Street near its intersection with Providence and Mason Streets. 

Simeon Martin's table stone, shown at the right was seriously damaged when suspected vandals tried to find his remains below it. 

The  Annawan Historical Society took it upon themselves to raise the funds to make the needed repairs.  The process is not only painstaking and very expensive, there are  fewer than 5 people skilled enough and legally authorized to make repairs to the markers in Massachusetts Historical Cemeteries.

The group ran fundraisers until they could afford to make the repairs. The society ceased to exist in 2005. Most members then joined the Rehoboth Antiquarian Society  

Simeon Martin's Grave Marker, shown above,  is inscribed with the longest epitaph in the Country. The photograph was taken on January 25, 2008

Except for its name, anyone approaching the cemetery from Providence Street would probably not realize that the site was atop a hill. However there is a sharp drop to the ravine on its North West side (see image to the left). This high point played a major role in the Revolutionary War. The land was barren at the time and Rehoboth Minutemen stationed themselves nearby at the "Liberty Tree" where they could send and receive signals from their counterparts in Rhode Island. All images on this page were taken in January of 2008
