The cemetery at Connecticut Valley Hospital is located at the foot of the hill to the east of the Hospital in the middle of what was once the Hospital’s farming operation.  An unpaved city road separates the first two hundred graves from the main section of the cemetery.  There were 1652 persons buried here between 1878 and 1955 and the majority of the graves are identified by a simple concrete marker with only a number. These are the graves of persons anonymous to the world who died here without a family or friend to claim them and take them home. Three markers now have been erected and names, age, date of death, and stone number have been continuously added.Since 1999 there has been an annual ceremony to honor and name those buried on the grounds.
