    According to oral tradition, this cemetery has served residents of the Providence area since the 1830s. The earliest marked grave is that of Elizabeth Hughes, who died in 1841, but the presence of unmarked graves suggests that the burial ground was used earlier. There are more than 600 graves located here, including those of early Providence area farmers, slaves, and veterans of the Civil War and World Wars I and II. The historic burial ground is maintained by the Providence Cemetery Association. It remains an important cultural resource in this area.
