In Nantucket, driving down Prospect Street, at the marker for “Historic Cemetery,” turn down a lane, directly behind the Nantucket Cottage Hospital.

This cemetery was originally called the "colored cemetery." It is the resting place of some of the early Black, Hawaiian, Cape Verdean people who died on Nantucket.

Mill Hill Cemetery is owned by the town of Nantucket. For more information about the cemetery, contact Catherine Flanagan Stover, Town Clerk or Georgen Charnes of the Nantucket Historical Association. Complete epitaph and digital images are available online at www.nha.org.

I walked and transcribed this cemetery in the summer of 2004, directly from tombstone inscriptions. It includes all existing and legible stones and markers up to that date.
