Not all patients of the Massachusetts Hospital for Dipsomaniacs and Inebriates or its successor, the Foxboro State Hospital, had known family contacts or families able to provide for their burial. To insure a proper final resting place, the commonwealth of Massachusetts purchased a large number of lots at Rock Hill cemetery for that purpose. As needs increased in the great depression, this cemetery was created in 1933 and subsequently expanded that those who remained in state care even in death would have the dignity of a proper burial.
