Ancient Burying Ground

An old cemetary occupies a prime location on Main Street in Hartford.  On one side is First Church of Christ (previously Center Church) and on the other side is a tall office building occupied by one of Connecticut's biggest companies. 

The cemetary got there first, in 1640, just four years after Rev. Thomas Hooker and his followers settled the city.

In the summer, school children volunteers give tours of the graveyard.  I felt badly that I was in a hurry and couldn't let the little girl give me the tour she offered.
