Union Cemetery National Register of Historic Places Listing
The $5,000 funding provided was for the next phase of having Scituate’s Historic Cemeteries placed on the National Register. Like the previously
approved CPC recommendations from the Scituate Historical Commission
for the Men of Kent Cemetery and Cudworth Cemetery, a listing on the National Register of Historic Places will help
recognize the historical significance of the Union Cemetery, providing increased opportunities to secure grant funding for the long-term preservation
as well as historical interpretation to further educate our residents and visitors of Scituate’s rich historical heritage.
This project fully meets the requirements of the Town’s CPC goals for historical resources by recognizing, preserving and enhancing the historical
heritage and character for the Town’s current and future generations.
