Most People Don’t Know This Park In Connecticut Was Built On An Ancient Burial Ground

Connecticut has a history of relocating tombstones without actually moving the bodies and this locale is no exception. The Guilford Green is often praised for its beauty and is one of the most well-kept greens in the state. But residents rarely talk about its past as a burial site. Historians have used the word transcendent to describe their visit there, because they know that the founders of one of America’s oldest settlements are just beneath their feet. But what do you think?
