The mission of the Ancient Burying Ground Association (ABGA) is to conserve the grave markers in Hartford’s oldest historic site, and to offer educational programs about the individuals interred there and their historic context. The Ancient Buying Ground offers City residents and workers a place of green and respite, and visitors from near and far enjoy the artwork, and research the history on the gravestones. With many of the gravestones in the Ancient Burying Ground now reaching 375 years in age, conservation is an ongoing process. 

As a non-profit volunteer organization, the ABGA counts on contributions to help with our mission. Your gift is greatly appreciated and is fully tax-deductible.
