Old Center Cemetery

The land for this cemetery, the oldest official burying ground in West Hartford was acquired in 1719 by the Town of Hartford for the benefit of its West Division Parish (West Hartford). It remained the principal place of burial until 1790, when the North Cemetery, not far to the north of here in Main Street, was opened. The cemetery contains graves of the first two pastors of the first church, Benjamin Colton and Nathaniel Hooker; of Noah and Mercy Steele Webster, the parents of Noah Webster the lexicographer; and of American and French soldiers who died in the Revolutionary War. It is maintained and the gravestones are preserved by the town.
