Southwest Cemetery, Simonds Avenue


This cemetery was originally known as the “Richards Cemetery” on land owned by Johan Richards until an association was formed circa 1887. When the Nepaug Reservoir was built in 1915, 198 bodies, dating back to 1828, were removed from “Old Southwest Cemetery” to Simonds Avenue. The Richards family bodies were moved to South Windsor, Connecticut.
