  1. Went there in 2010 in the Winter. I slipped on some ice and fell on my back and heard several people laughing at me. I was the only person in the cemetery.

    October 21, 2017 8:00 AM — 5:00 PM at the gate on Livingston Street near the intersection of East Street.  We need volunteers for raking, clearing brush and light debris. We could also use some muscle in hauling some of the heavier debris as well.

    We will have supplies but feel free to bring tools, gloves, rakes, chain saws, wheel barrows or anything else you may find useful for some heavy landscaping.  For more details free to check out our facebook group at “Save the Tewksbury Hospital Pines Cemetery”, call or e-mail the numbers below and also please donate to our ALL VOLUNTEER Go Fund Me Page at

  4. I have to finally post this here because I think about it every once in a while and it still spooks me.
    I grew up in Tewksbury and used to walk the cemeteries all the time. Only one time have I ever had an experience, and it was seeing the dark leathery skinned creature. It was like 10-15 years ago, walking through the East Street Cemetery during the day, and I saw it. Picture a dog, but with dark, wrinkly, leathery skin, and no ears or facial figures. The legs were wrong. I saw it standing with its head low to the ground and I got so spooked I booked it to the town center before stopping. After catching my breath and the adrenaline wore off I figured it was a trick of the eye and never told anyone. Years later I recalled the story to some friends and they told me that they’d heard that other people had seen some leathery creature in that cemetery, and I was freaked out.
    I never went back to the cemetery since then, and I live elsewhere now, but sometimes I think about going back to investigate. I’m still spooked just thinking about it but I’m also curious and want to figure out what the hell that was.

    When I was 4 years old I went with my mother to visit her father’s (my grandfather’s) grave. While standing at the grave I pointed out to my mother that the flowers were flashing bright and dark as we stood there, and asked her why they were flashing. She took sudden notice and said “Let’s go.” I was little so I didn’t think more of it.
    For years I would remind her of the story and she would get weirded out.

  6. I and my friend git lost there last year in the winter stayed there all night we saw a massive black dog laying g 20 yards away and would inch closer but lay there
