Welcome to the Green Lawn Cemetery Advisory Committee
greenlawn "A very early action of the town, at the third town meeting in 1853, was the appointment of a committee on a town cemetery. At the March, 1856 meeting the committee reported the purchase of a lot in Range Eleven containing about two acres.

In 1858 a street was laid out from the highway to the cemetery and the place was named Greenlawn Cemetery" Fred A. Wilson from Some Annals of Nahant
Ellingwood Chapel
EC "At a special town meeting in 1918, the town accepted the offer to build a cemetery chapel, thus carrying out the intentions of her late husband. It was started in 1919 and dedicated on May 30, 1920.

It was named "Ellingwood Chapel" in memory of Joanna Ellingwood Green and Joseph Johnson, Jr., who were Luther Johnson's mother and Father."
