The Pines Cemetery

You are here Home  > Cemeteries >  The Pines Cemetery

The Pines is the old cemetery from Tewksbury State Hospital. There are numbered markers here for over 10,000 individuals who died at the hospital. It is rumored that many bodies were exhumed and taken to Boston for medical students to train on.

The cemetery is located in the woods and is fairly accessible. Screams can be heard in the woods surrounding the graves, apparitions of people seen between the trees. A very good place to go hunting for EVP.

  1. I lived in Tewksbury for many years. About a mile from these woods. The paupers Graves are marked with a circle and cross. No names or anything else.
    It was a state hospital where there are many underground tunnels.
    Annie Sullivan’s nurse c was there, with her brother, who I believe died of tb.
    They talk of play with the dead bodies in the hall.

    There were many cages, straight jackets. Ect. Feeding through sliding doors, showers by garden hoses.

    I have researched this. You should too!
