New Boston was a village that was practically erased from existence to make room for the 1940s Birch Hill Dam flood control project. This cemetery, which lies within the Otter River State Forest, is just about all that is left of the town. Legend has it that it is haunted, and if you back up to a particular tree, you can see an angry figure hanging from it.
