The Hunt-Clark Cemetery is located near the intersection of Windward and Alcott Streets in Lowell, not far off Andover Street (Route 133). Once only accessible by a path off Clark Road, the cemetery is now surrounded by mid 20th century residential development.

The site is about half an acre set atop a hill surrounded by a low stonewall. The remains of the granite gateposts are near the base of the entrance path. A footpath leads upward into site which has a wide range of markers, from fieldstone to slate, marble, local stones, and granite. There are about 102 gravestones, including many footstones. Most of the older burials were placed with the headstone facing west and the footstone facing east with the interred between them. A marble monument for the Bradley family is in the northwest corner of the site. Many family plots are separated with granite or stone boundary markers. On visible markers the dates range from 1708-1942.

Deed research proved the land still belongs to the Hunt family but has been abandoned long before the last burial in 1942. The cemetery is in poor condition, with vandalism evident with toppled stones and spray paint on other stones. Other markers are unsteady or lay in pieces on the ground. Depressions mark the site, due to the gravesites not being lined with cement which was a custom adopted in later cemeteries. Unsupervised clean-up sessions in the over the last thirty years led to many markers being moved from their original positions and placed against trees or the stonewalls. A thick cover of poison ivy grows throughout the site.

The inscriptions came from a spreadsheet done by Jim McNamara in the late 1970s and stored at the Center for Lowell History in Lowell, MA. (http://library.uml.edu/clh). Many of the stones have deteriorated and are no longer readable, so we are very thankful for this work. Some tombstones were listed under the maiden names, but the inscriptions give the married name.
