When the Hartford and Springfield Street Railway built a branchline from Warehouse Point to Rockville in 1905, a small cemetery near Newberry Road stood in the way of a straight-as-an-arrow trolley line. The cemetery was relocated to a spot of dry land along Route 140 near the tracks. The air around the cemetery always had a chill after the move and the locals kept away, letting Mother Nature take over.

Years later as the trolley museum began planning for the Visitor Center, workers began surveying the land and found the gravestones from the old cemetery hidden in the woods. Oddly enough, further inspection found that there were only headstones... no coffins or remains were in the earth.
