Few People Realize There Are Thousands Of Bodies Buried At This Unexpected Spot In Connecticut

Connecticut is a really old state. We became a part of the U.S. in 1788 but European colonists populated the area for more than a century prior to the organization of the Union. Because of our long history, there are cemeteries scattered throughout the entire state. But what you might not know about is the massive New Haven burial ground that is unmarked and hiding in plain sight.
