Dunstable, incorporated on October 15, 1673, once comprised 200 square miles (132,800 acres) extending from Londonderry, New Hampshire, to Chelmsford, Massachusetts. It was originally incorporated upon the petition of 26 proprietors of land along the Merrimack. During the 1700s, section after section broke off until 15 separate towns were formed, leaving Dunstable only 10,500 acres and a population of 380 in 1790. dunstable.org

Nice set of pictures. They really capture the fog and wetness typical of the winter in NE. Amazing how these places are so long forgotten.

I really like the moss on the stones. Graveyards like this are one part of New England that has not changed one bit since colonial times. Sadly, near where I live is a 17th century cemetery that also has a mass grave of Revolutionary War soldiers that is over grown with poison ivy and is nearly a ruin.
