In 1783, Nehemiah Carpenter, Samuel Baker and Jeremiah Hartshorn conveyed to the selectmen and their successors in office forever four acres of land on which the meeting house had been built for use as a town common. Mr. Carpenter also gave one hundred and eleven rods of land near the meeting house for a centre burial ground. As the deed was signed Nehemiah noted the piece of land given by him for a burying place is for that, and that only. Several graves would later be removed to Rock Hill Cemetery to provide space for the town's Civil War Memorial
