Thomas Cemetery

  • An excerpt detailing the visible stones at the Thomas 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 Main Street to the right, almost in Bryantville Square, are two tombs where the members of the old-time Thomas families used to be interred many years ago. Since the public burying grounds have been establishd, these tombs are no longer of any use.
