Woodbrook Cemetery

100 Salem Street

Woodbrook Cemetery was established in 1845 to address Woburn’s growing population and overcrowding at the Second Burial Ground.  At first, only Protestants were interred here but in later years, other religions were allowed.


The cemetery contains many famous Woburn residents as well as Union and Revolutionary War Soldiers.  Some early 19th century graves were moved here from the Second Burial Ground when the cemetery opened in 1845.


Many more pictures will be coming in the near future...Stay tuned!!

limestone.  Both slowly dissolve when exposed to rainwater

over time.

Slate

slightly porous and takes lettering well.
