Established ten years after the incorporation of the Town in 1672, the cemetery is home to over 30,000 permanent residents. The site is comprised of 104 contiguous acres and characterized by curvilinear avenues and paths set in a rolling terrain of mature trees, shrubs and gardens. Gravestones range from the hand carved slate monuments of the late 1600's to the modern monuments of the present.

A Veterans Memorial has been designed by James Stroud, a Milton artist. Comprised of a fountain and seating in a bluestone and granite plaza at the center of the Garden of Honor, it will be a contemplative place to remember and honor our veterans. The Cemetery Trustees have established a fund to receive donations to make this memorial possible.
The Gift Fund was established in the 1980's to accept funds for beautification projects that would not be possible under our present appropriation.
The "Friends of the Milton Cemetery", a 501 (c) 3 organization helps support ongoing programs, events and preservation projects.
A gift to either fund is tax deductible and is 100% utilized for work or events at Milton Cemetery.
