Howland Cemetery

  • An excerpt detailing the visible stones at the Howland Cemetery in the 1960s from a typed document regarding the history of Hanson, which was written in preparation of the sesquicentennial celebration in Hanson (1970). The document can be found in the Historical room of the Hanson Public Library. For full text detailing the cemeteries of Hanson, see Burial Hill.

On Indian Head Street,quite a distance from the highway, in a field, only a short distance from Maquan Pond is the Howland Cemetery. This private plot once used for a burying ground by old settlers that lived nearby. There are three stones in a pine grove - all in good condition.
