Both public and private cemeteries (burying grounds) exist in Newton. There are three city cemeteries located as follows: one on Centre Street, one on River Street and one on Winchester Street. Known as the East Parish Burying Ground, the Centre Street Cemetery is the oldest. Located at the corner of Cotton and Centre streets, the first grave dug here was in 1664.
There are two private cemeteries in Newton: the Newton Cemetery (791 Walnut Street, Newton Centre) near City Hall and the Newton Free Library. This cemetery is a spot of quiet beauty that was set aside by public spirited citizens in 1855 and has been acknowledged as one of the most beautiful cemeteries of its size in the country. St. Mary's Cemetery the other private cemetery is owned by St Mary's Episcopal Church on Grove Street, in Newton Lower Falls. Its stark beauty is matched by the church which borders one side.
