Beaver Cemetery History

One of the oldest cemeteries in town, located in what is called “Beaver” in East Bridgewater, MA. The land was donated by the original families who lived in “Beaver” and unlike other cemeteries, is now owned by each lot owner and their family. When the cemetery was started each family took care of their own lots, but as years have gone by fewer and fewer families had taken on this responsibility and as a result the Trustees (board of lot owners) took over the job of maintenance and preservation of the cemetery. For over 100 years now the Proprietors have raised money through the Ladies Auxiliary, yard sales, fundraisers, and the sale of grave lots to support the General and Perpetual Care Funds. Today, families of loved ones in the cemetery continue to work together to maintain the preservation and history of Beaver Cemetery.

Lots for sale:

We currently have over 200 graves available for sale at $800 each. Graves are for both full burial and cremations. Please contact our Superintendent for more information.
