The City Debt on the first day of February, 1849, as per ac- 
count of last year, amounted to the sum of $39,973 65 

Of this sum there has been paid during the 
year, when falling due, .... 19,497 00 

Reducing the debt to, $20,476 65 

Which has been increased by loans authorized, 36,500 00 

Making the total City Debt at this time, . $56,976 65 

The times when this sum becomes payable may be seen by 
referring to the Schedule of the City Debt, accompanying this 
Report. 

Of the increase of the City Debt, $17,000 is for the pur- 
chase of Brook Farm ; $8,000 for renewal of note to James 
Parker ; $3,000 for renewal of note to the trustees of the 
Eliot School Fund ; $8,500 for loans authorized to meet sun- 
dry payments due last spring. 

For a detailed statement of the Poor and Almshouse, refer- 
ence may be made to the report of the Overseers of the Poor, 
which is appended, and to which the attention of the citizens is 
directed. The expenditures for the Poor and Almshouse will 
be found under the appropriate heads in the details of appro- 
priations and expenditures accompanying this Report. 

The expense of supporting our poor for the few last years, 
having increased so rapidly and to such an extent, the City 
Council, in the month of April last, for reasons which appeared 
to them as good and sufficient, authorized the purchase of 
Brook Farm, situated in West Roxbury, for the purpose of 
locating the Almshouse establishment upon it. It seems to be 
a fact susceptible of the clearest demonstration, that so long as 
the Almshouse remains in the most populous part of the city we 
cannot reasonably expect any reduction in the expenditures of 
the poor, but on the contrary a gradual increase is certain. 
To place the establishment upon a better, as well as a more 
economical footing, and to remedy the existing evils, it was the 
opuiion of the City Council, as well as the Board of Overseers 



of the Poor, after a tkorough and eareful examination of the 
subject, that the estabhshment shofuld be removed to a remote 
part of the citj, — that bj so doing it would reduce the number 
of paupers, or at ka&t diminish the increase, — and other positive 
advantages, would be obtained of the highest importance to the 
interests of the city. The cost of the Farm was $19,160. 
The committee who purchased it, in their report say, " that in 
accomplishing this desirable object it will not he necessary to 
burden the people with a heavy tax. The ways and means to 
meet the expenditure, seem to be ready at hand. To provide 
for the debt incurred in the purchase, and to meet such expend- 
itures as shall become necessary in providing such buildings as 
may hereafter be required, a portion of the real estate belong- 
ing to the city, (the Munroe Farm in Warren st., or the Alms- 
house land on Highland st.,) can be disposed of on advantageous 
terms, and the proceeds of the sale be devoted to this purpose. 
In addition to the amount obtained from the sale, the city would 
derive other benefits of no little importance, not the least of 
which is the additional amount of taxable property, which would 
thus be created." 

The reasons for the removal of the Almshouse and the pur- 
chase of Brook Farm, are very fully set forth in the report of 
the Joint Committee of the City Council (City Document No. 
8,) which was published, and distributed among the inhabitants 
of the city, in the month of April last. 

At the time of submitting the report of last year, the ac- 
count against the Commonwealth for the support of State pau- 
pers was disallowed, by the Committee on Accounts of the legis- 
lature, and the matter being referred to the Committee on 
Claims, was reported upon favorably by that committee, but the 
resolve was lost in the Senate. The claim was presented to the 
legislature of the present year, and allowed, and the amount 
(1^3,521 99) has been received and paid into the City Treas- 
ury, and will be shown in the accounts of next year, it not having 
been received in season to be exhibited in the accounts this year. 

The expenditures for schools have fallen below those of last 
year $15,916 47. A new primary school house has been 
built on the Norfolk and Bristol Turnpike, nearly opposite 
Green street, at an expense, including land, of $3,106 12, 
which, added to the appropriations for ventilating the Washing- 
ton School House, finishing the lower story of the Primary 
School House on Mt. Pleasant, the balance for the Central 
School House, Jamaica Plains, together with the ordinary ex- 
penses of teachers' salaries, fuel, appropriation to the Eoxbury 
Grammar School, and contingencies, exhibits an aggregate of 
$29,422 76. 



The appi'opriation for Highways, Bridges and Sidewalks was 
made general ; but the expenditures have been made in three 
sections, as has been the practice for many years. These sec- 
tions were assigned a certain sum by the Surveyors of High- 
ways, and the expenditures will be found in detail under their 
appropriate heads. 

It appears by the report of the Commissioners, that in Wards 
1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, there was expended for Highways and Bridges, 
$7,291 42 ; for Sidewalks. $808 67 ; in Wards 6 and 7, for 
Highways and Bridges, $2,517 79 ; for Sidewalks, $289 01 ; 
in Ward 8, for Highways, Bridges and Sidewalks, $1,108 17 ; 
showing the total expenditure to be $12,015 06. 

The ordinary expenditures of the Fire Department fall below 
those of last year, but the total expenditures have been some- 
what increased, in consequence of building a new house near 
Wait's Mill, for the use of the Hose Company, and furnishing 
the hose and carriage, and the necessary apparatus and fixtures. 
The amount for these objects was taken from the contingent 
appropriation of the Fire Department, which accounts for its 
increase. The report of the Chief Engineer on the state and 
condition of the department, with details of service and other 
subjects connected, is appended. 

Three reservoirs have been built during the year ; one on 
Centre st., West Roxbury, one on Centre St., Jamaica Plain, 
and one on Pearl st. A reservoir was to have been built near 
the corner of Eustis and Davis streets, but in consequence of the 
rapid and constant flow of water, it was deemed impracticable, 
and a well twelve feet in diameter was sunk to the depth of 
eighteen feet, which, it is thought, will furnish an inexhaustible 
supply of water. The amount expended for reservoirs and wells 
is $1,271 47. 

It will be seen by an examination of the details of the ex- 
penditures under the different heads accompanying this Report, 
that, besides the ordinary expenditures, there has been a consid- 
erable outlay for permanent improvements of value and import- 
ance to the city, amounting to upwards of $24,000 ; such as 

For Brook Farm, amounting to . . . $19,150 00 
" New School House and land on Norfolk and 
Bristol Turnpike, opposite Green street, 
Jamaica Plain, amounting to . . 3,106 12 

" Land at Point, addition to City Wharf, 

amounting to 412 00 



Amount carried forward, . . . $22,668 1: 



Amount brought forward^ . . . $22,668 12 
For Engine House for Hose Company, near 

Wait's Mill, amounting to . . . 310 00 

" Reservoirs, " ... 1,271 47 

" Wells, « ... 237 00 



Amounting to $24,486 59 

The act of the legislature relating to the Cemetery, requires 
that the proceeds of sales of lots or rights of burial in Forest 
Hills Cemetery, shall be paid into the City Treasury, to be kept 
separate from any other funds of the city, and subject to the 
order of the Commissioners. The proceeds are to be devoted 
to the liquidation of the debt incurred in the purchase of the 
land, and for improving and embellishing the grounds. 

The amount received into the Treasury from 
Feb. 1st, 1849, to Feb. 1st, 1850, from sun- 
dry persons, for sales and grading lots, was . $12,077 80 

And the amount paid upon the drafts or orders of 

the Commissioners for the same period was . 11,289 33 

Leaving a balance in the Treasury, Feb. 1, 1850, of $788 47 

The Cemetery Debt, incurred in the purchase of the land, 
amounts to $27,551 55. The times when this sum becomes 
payable may be seen by referring to the Schedule accompany- 
ing this Report. 

The attention of the citizens is respectfully directed to the 
report of the Commissioners of the Cemetery, appended to this 
Report, in which will be found an interesting statement of their 
doings the past year, the state and condition of the Cemetery, 
the receipts from sales and grading of lots, and the various items 
of expenditure, together with the names of the purchasers of lots. 

Annexed are statements of the unexpended balances of the 
appropriations of the previous year, and the appropriations and 
transfers for 1849 ; the details of the expenditures under their 
proper heads, and the present balance of each appropriation, 
and a schedule of the real and personal property of the city. 

All which is respectfully submitted, 
For the Committee, 

JOSEPH N. BREWER. 

Boxbury, February 20«A, 1850.

be devoted to the liquidation of the debt incurred in the purchase of the land 
for said Cemetery, and to the improvement and embellishment thereof, as afore- 
said, under the direction of said Board of Commissioners. And no other moneys 
shall be appropriated from the City Treasurer by the City Council, for suck

OVERSEERS OF THE POOR. 



The Overseers of the Poor of the Citj of Roxburj, respectfully 
submit the following 

REPORT: 

In consequence of the contemplated removal of the poor to 
the farm which was purchased last spring for that purpose, as 
soon as it could be conveniently done, the expenditures upon 
the Alms House, other than those for the support of the in- 
mates, have been confined to such repairs only as were deemed 
indispensable for the preservation of the buildings, and to render 
them commodious for the purposes to which they have severally 
been appropriated.

When the charge of the Brook Farm was confided to the 
Overseers of the Poor, a Committee was appointed to superin- 
tend its management, consisting of Thomas Simmons, Michael 
Whittemore and Ira Allen ; and although the season for farming 
was far advanced when possession was taken of that estate, the 
most efficient measures were adopted, by that Committee, for 
reahzing all that it was possible to accomplish. Most of the 
inmates who were able to labor, were sent there. The grounds 
had been much neglected and but little manure could be obtained. 
A very competent man, by the name of Cary was employed, 
with his wife, to reside on the farm, the former to act as assis- 
tant, during the absence of the Superintendent, whose time 
was necessarily divided between the two estabHshments, under 
his control, and the latter to have the direction of the female 
department. 

The Fruit Trees were pruned, and between eight and nine 
acres ploughed and planted with corn, potatoes, beans, cab- 
bages and other vegetables. The shrubs and small trees in 
the pasture were dug up and removed, two acres of the 
meadow were ploughed, manured and sowed with gTass-seed, 
an acre of the swamp cleared up, five acres ploughed for 
planting in the spring, a large quantity of materials collected for 
forming compost manure, many rocks blasted and taken from 
the fields, and about fifty-five rods of stone wall built, between 
the city and Palmer's land and on the side of the pasture. 

During the warm months the children were sent to the Pil- 
grim House, where they were well accommodated, and returned 
in excellent health, while the other persons, who remained at 
the Alms House, were far more quiet and comfortable. 

From the experiment which has been made, and under very 
unfavorable circumstances, in all respects, it is evident that 
with the ample means for obtaining vast quantities of the best 
kinds of materials for enriching the land, which the swamps, 



60 



barn-yard and night-cart afford, that the extensive area and 
diversified quahties of the grounds can be rendered very fertile, 
and, within a few years, yield such crops as will greatly diminish 
the annual appropriations for the support of the Poor, and ulti- 
mately render the establishment as beautiful and valuable, as it 
will be convenient and pleasant for the inmates, and honorable 
to the city.

The Superintending Committee state, in their Report, made

The Committee also state in their reports, " that much of the 
success which has attended the cultivation of Brook Farm, is 
due to the energetic and persevering exertions of the Superin- 
tendent ;" and conclude their report as follows : 

" They cannot but feel that the sooner a suitable House for 
the accommodation oi all the inmates of the x\lms House, shall 
be furnished bj the City, at the Brook Farm, the sooner will 
the hopes and wishes of the philanthrojihic citizens of Boxbury 
be realized in having provided a suitable, healthy agricultural 
home for the unfortunate recipients of their bounty." 

As it is of the first importance that the suggestion made by 
the superintending committee, as to the expediency of the re- 
moval of the poor to the farm, it is earnestly recommended that 
measures should be adopted by the City Council for accomplish- 
ing that very desirable object as soon as it is practicable ; for 
it will not only be difiicult, but much more expensive to culti- 
vate the land, and perform all such other kind of work as is 
required for rendering the establishment available for all the 
great purposes for which the estate was purchased, so long as 
the existing Alms House is simultaneously maintained. Be- 
sides, neither portion of the poor can be as well taken care of, 
and as properly managed as to their deportment and labor, 
while the time and services of the Superintendent are divided 
between the two locations, as they would be if they were all 
collected within the bounds of the Fann ; where, as has been 
fully stated in the various reports which have been made in 
relation to this subject, their health, morals, comfort, reforma- 
tion and usefulness could be more certainly and eifectually pro- 
moted, and at a less expense than in the present Alms 
House. 

As the Board of Overseers had been informed there was an 
opinion entertained that the poor of Boxbury were better, and 
consequently more expensively provided for than those in other 
parts of the State, a committee was appointed, consisting of 
Moses Gragg, George Gregerson and Ira Allen, early in the 
municipal year, to examine such Alms Houses as they might 
deem expedient for the purpose of making a just comparison of 



62 

the systems by which they were severally managed ; and in a 
report presented on the thirtieth of December last, they state, 
that they had visited those in New Bedford, Salem, Boston, 
Charlestown and Cambridge, and after giving a detailed account 
of the food furnished in each, every day in the week, they re- 
mark that " the amount of help employed differed very little. 
In proportion to the magnitude of the drSerent establishments, 
if there is any one of them better provided than the rest, it is 
that at South Boston ;" and as to the manner of living, they ob- 
serve that " New Bedford is the best. South Boston next, and 
Salem next, and Charlestown, Cambridge and Roxbury so nearly 
alike we make no comparison." 

Annexed is a report of the physician, by which it appears 
that the whole number of patients during the year, has amount- 
ed to 403 ; of which 317 have recovered, 45 died, 18 have 
been discharged, or left the Alms House, and 22 are under 
treatment. 

The recommendation he has submitted in relation to the 
retention of the present Alms House for a hospital, and send- 
ing only the well inmates to the farm, is considered as very 
objectionable ; for in practical operation it would result in the 
foundation of two Alms Houses, in distant parts of the city, and 
involve a largely augmented and inexpedient expenditure. For 
if it is not to be an Alms House as well as a hospital for the 
poor, the destitute patients, when restored to health, must be 
sent to the farm ; and if a hospital is not to be established 
at that place also, those who there' become sick must be remov- 
ed to the former ; so that whether it be only a hospital, or an 
Alms House and hospital combined, the result in producing an 
augmented expense would be the same ; and if only a hospital, 
then would there be not only an additional and very costly 
institution, but the inconvenience of being so far distant from 
the Alms House, that the trouble and expense of alternately 
removing the sick and the well from one to the other, would be 
double that of sending both classes to the farm, where the well 
could be better, and the diseased as comfortably provided for in 
all respects as at the proposed hospital. 

When the capital of the commonwealth, with a population of 
over one hundred thousand has not a distinct hospital for the 
sick poor other than that connected with the Alms House, it 
cannot be expected that a city so small as Roxbury should 
incur an expense for such a purpose, when all its means are 
required to be prudently managed to meet the annual indispen- 



63 

sable demand upon the treasury. When the inhabitants shall 
amount to eight or ten times the present number, and the re- 
sources will warrant the measure, it cannot be doubted that a 
portion of the large tract of land which has been procured for 
the express purpose of meeting the demand not merely of the 
age in which we live, but of the distant future, for sites on 
which eleemosynary and other useful and important institutions 
may be reared, will be appropriated to the establishment of 
such a hospital as may then be required ; and fortunate will it 
be for the people when that period arrives, that they are ena- 
bled to have all such places of refuge for the poor and the sick 
far removed from the midst of their dwellings ; and what a cause 
of gratulation will it be to the afflicted and destitute, that benefi- 
cence had provided such a retired, appropriate and pleasant 
position for their abodes. 

The propriety of having distinct and isolated apartments for 
the sick of the Alms House establishment, has ever been con- 
sidered of the first importance, since the great increase of the 
inmates, and so necessary was it found to be when a malignant 
fever prevailed, the year before last, that an edifice was erected 
for that purpose, as well as a second for patients afflicted with 
the small pox. 

But at Brook Farm some one of the large buildings can be 
used for a hospital, and the cottage as a pest house ; for the 
edifice required for the reception of the poor, and other purposes, 
can be erected sufficiently near to render them available for 
those objects ; and in such a convenient manner as to separate the 
well from the sick, and thus insure the comfort of both classes 
of inmates. 

It is believed that the land on which the Alms House stands 
could be sold for nearly a sufficient sum to pay for the farm, and 
to supply the wants of rearing such a building thereon as is 
required ; it would therefore be highly impolitic to retain that 
establishment merely for the purpose of a hospital, when equally 
as good arrangements can be made for patients at the former 
place, and where alone they should be provided for them. 

In the last report of the Board, it was recommended that a 
building should be provided, to be used as a chapel, school 
room and dormitory ; but as it was afterwards concluded that 
one or more of the buildings at the farm could be converted 
to these purposes, no appropriation was made for carrying that 
recommendation into effect ; and as the reasons then assigned 
for affording to the inmates the advantages and consolations of 



64 

religious services on the sabbath, and the children a more spa- 
cious and commodious apartment for their instruction, can be 
reiterated with propriety, the necessity of a speedy removal of 
the whole establishment is rendered more apparent and imperi- 
ous ; for justice, humanity, piety and the duties imposed upon 
the municipal government, all combine to urge forward and 
consummate the plan, which was so timely, promptly and zeal- 
ously commenced, for the amelioration of the condition of those 
deeply to be compassionated individuals, who rely upon the 
public bounty for relief, and at the same time enable the city 
to extend it in the best and least onerous manner.

Thus it appears that, during a year of comparative health, 
this hospital has had its full share of the diseases prevalent in 
the City. It is not improbable that a like proportion will continue 
as heretofore. Much good is effected by this charity, much suf- 
fering alleviated and many lives saved. Still too many defer 
entering until the period of relief is nearly, or hopelessly, passed. 
Individual suffering is thereby augmented, and the expense 
and loss to the community increased. A remedy for this and 
many other ills attendant on sickness, connected with poverty 
and destitution, has been repeatedly suggested to former 
Boards, and through them to the proper authorities.* Your 
attention is again asked to those suggestions, especially as the 
present time offers a favorable opportunity for carrying out a 
plan similar to that so often proposed. The City Government, 
as you well know, has purchased Brook Farm for a Pauper 
Establishment, in order to give more profitable employment to 
the well and able-bodied, and to diminish the expense of their 
support. According to published documents,! it will be neces- 
sary to erect buildings for the accommodation of both the 
sick and the well before the contemplated removal of the estab- 
lishment can be successfully accomplished. There is, however, 
some reason to beheve that the buildings now on Brook Farm 
may, by a moderate outlay, be put in repair, and be sufficient 
for the accommodation of the well for years to come, while it is 
doubted whether, leaving humanity out of the question, it will 
be good economy even to incur the expenses of removal without 
avoiding those evils of the present arrangement, which arise 
from congregating the sick and well in one household. " The 
comfort of the sick," say the Committee who purchased Brook 
Farm, and say truly, — " the comfort of the sick, and the 
health of the well, require that all the really sick should be kept 
altogether away from those in good health. "J It is therefore 
suggested, that when the Pauper Establishment shall have been 
removed, as contemplated, the existing brick building (near 
Highland street,) be converted into a Greneral Hospital, for the 
City's sick, and others who, though destitute, should never be 
classed with common paupers. The City will thus be saved the 
expense of a new building for the sick at Brook Farm, and the 
sick poor, most of whom come from the lower wards,§ the evils 

* In former Reports, particularly that of Jan. 31, 1847. 

t City Document, No 6, Sept. 1849. % City Document, No. 3, April, 1849, p. 6. 

^ Of the more than fourteen hundred patients treated at the Alms House 
during; the last three years, less than one hundred came from the three upper 
wards, and these mostly from a neighboring part of Ward 6. Very few have 
been taken sick in the house, except from exposure to those brought in sick — an 
exposure unavoidable under a system like the present, and a valid argument for 
the removal of the well from the sick. 



69 

and dangers of distant removal, to say nothing of the extra 
cost thereof; while the separation of the sick from the well, so 
often urged upon the public attention, — and nowhere better 
than in the Report of the Committee above referred to, — will 
also be effectually and properly accomplished.* Besides, the 
expense of maintaining the existing building, which is well 
adapted for the purpose, and in good condition,! when thus con- 
verted into a Hospital, need not exceed that of a new building, 
when erected at Brook Farm. 

In these suggestions are only carried out the ideas of the 
Report before alluded to, wherein it is also truly stated that 
" the Hospital is becoming of more and more relative import- 
ance, and should be, as in time it must be to a great extent, a 
separate establishment," | 

The above proposed plan is believed to be feasible, economi- 
al, and for the benefit of the whole City, and as such, worthy 
of consideration. § 

I remain, gentlemen, your obedient servant, 

B. E. COTTING, 
Physician to the Almshouse. 

Roxbury, January, 31, 1850. 

* The beneficial effects on the sick of the removal of a large portion of the 
well to Brook Farm during some of the summer months, were very apparent, and 
excited remarks from all connected with the establisliment. In fact, the number 
of the sick, as well as the amount of sickness, is always diminished by increasing 
the accommodations and comforts of the sufferers — a truth too well known and 
admitted to need discussion. 

f Thoroughly built of brick ; length 100 feet ; width of main 55 feet, of wings 
47 feet. Kitchen and wash-rooms in basement ; three stories, and a good attic. 
Erected in 1831, when labor and materials were unprecedentedly cheap, at a cost 
of S 16,500 ; a large part of the interior since finished. Really too good a buil'd- 
ing to be demolished when so much needed for purposes above mentioned. 

J City Document, No. 3, p. 6. — For several years past, the admissions of the 
sick for the benefits of the hospital have exceeded one third of the whole from 
all causes. 

^ It should be borne in mind that this Report is predicated on the supposition 
that the establishment will sometime be removed. Undoubtedly the chief 
objection to such removal will be its great expense. The Report proposes the 
attainment of a great goodvihWe diminishing such expense — certainly not increas- 
ing it. For cheapness merely, the present establishment will probably never be 
surpassed, having, according to the best estimate that can now be made, never 
cost the City (after deducting State allowances, receipts, &c.) more than ^6,000 
a year. This estimate is probably much too large, since the net cost for the past 
year amounts only to ,^4,536.51. 



COUNTER REPOET. 



To the Son. Board., Mayor and Aldermen. 
Gentlemen : The undersigned members of the Board of Over- 
seers of the Poor ask leave to submit a Counter 
REPORT. 

The undersigned do not charge the Report of the Board of 
Overseers with any intentions to misstate the facts ; but, for the 
want of more and further information, they have been led 
into an error, inasmuch as they have given to Brook Farm a 
credit of ^1,069.98 ; for it will be clearly shown that the credit 
ought to be the other way, — against Brook Farm, and not in its 
favor ; for there ought to have been charged to the Farm, 1,500 
days' labor for the inmates, who were supported at the Alms 
House, $150 ; 40 cords of manure taken from Alms House, 
$160 ; provisions consumed on the Farm, $265 ; use of horse 
belonging to Alms House, $100 ; services of Superintendent, 
$100,— making $1,375 ; subtract $1,069.98 from $1,375, and 
there is a balance against Brook Farm of $305.02. This bal- 
ance might be increased with propriety, but this is enough 
to show the error. The interest on the purchase might be 
taken into consideration, if it were necessary. The undersigned 
differ in opinion from the Report of the Overseers, inasmuch as 
the Report recommends the immediate building of a house and 
other accommodations on Brook Farm, so that the paupers may 
be placed there as early in the season as it is practicable. It is 
true that we have acknowledged, and do acknowledge, that a 
house must be built at Brook Farm before the paupers can be 
placed there ; but that is not recommending the immediate build- 
ing of a house at this time ; and, in our own opinion, there are 
many good reasons against such change. There is now within 
the limits of the Alms House yard a quantity of stone, which 
will employ all the inmates who are able to labor, for fifteen 
years to come, and it is the most profitable employment they 
can be set about, for there is no one material so much wanted 
by the City as stone, properly broken and prepared for the roads ; 



71 



and when this stone is all taken from the present situation, 
the grounds from -which it is taken will be much increased in 
value, and the Citj will receive a two-fold benefit. Move the 
Alms House from its present location to Brook Farm, and this 
benefit is in a great measure lost to the City, which, in our OAvn 
opinion, is more than Brook Farm can compensate for many 
years. The value of the present Alms House is to be taken 
into consideration ; for, in our own opinion, there is not in Bos- 
ton, or in the immediate vicinity, a Jiouse which surpasses our 
own, and to abandon it, would subject the City to a great loss. 
The Report of the Board of Overseers in setting forth and stat- 
ing the reasons why a separate hospital should not be maintained, 
has given good and sufficient reasons. For the Report says, 
when our population amounts to some four or five times what it 
now is, then it may become necessary, but at the present time 
would subject the City to an unnecessary expense ; and what 
they say in regard to the hospital applies equally as forcible, if 
not more so, against the moving of the Alms House to Brook 
Farm. 

The undersigned most respectfully request that this Report 
may follow and accompany the Report of the Board of Over- 
seers of the Poor.

REPORT 

OP THE 

COMMISSIONERS 

OP 

FOREST HILLS CEMETERY. 



In conformity to the fifth section of "An Act relative to a 
Public Cemetery in the City of Roxbury," the Commission- 
ers respectfully submit the following 

REPORT. 

The work at Forest Hills has not been suspended since that 
establishment was commenced, as it was ascertained that a few 
men could be as usefully employed during the winter as at any 
other season of the year, in grading lots in certain portions of 
the grounds, and in removing from the meadow a large quantity 
of vegetable loam, wh^ph has been extensively used for enriching 
the soil in the borders of the avenues and paths, and the surfaces 
of the lots, previous to their being covered with sods. 

As the demand for lots was very constant, from early spring 
until late in the autumn, and the proprietors being generally 
very desirous that they should be prepared for interments as 
soon as practicable, the chief attention of the commissioners 
was directed to the accomplishment of that important object, 
and in the construction of avenues and paths through those parts 
of the Cemetery where the lots had been selected ; and as the 
earth within their limits could be advantageously employed in 
filling up or elevating such lots as required it, above the nat- 
ural surface of the ground, it was removed for that purpose to the 
depth of from two to three or more feet, and the excavations 
thus made filled with stones taken from the lots in the process 
of trenching and grading, and being then covered with gravel, 



73 

a thorough drainage was secured, and the avenues and paths 
thereby rendered solid, dry, smooth and durable. 

The variously formed plots within the areas at many of the 
junctions of the avenues and paths, as well as the ends of the 
spaces between them, have been reserved, trenched, bordered 
with sods or stones, and planted with trees, shrubs and herba- 
ceous flowering plants, for the purpose of more completely 
developing the remarkably picturesque features of the grounds, 
and thus rendering them more diversified, beautiful and inter- 
esting. 

The trees, with their roots, have been removed from four 
ranges of footpaths, which extend between White Oak and 
Cherry avenues, from Aspin to Fountain avenues, whose aggre- 
gate length is nearly four thousand feet, and will afford excel- 
lent sites for about three hundred lots, as the whole area of the 
grounds through which they pass is covered with a dense grove 
of native trees and shrubs. 

A receiving tomb has been constructed for the deposit of the 
remains of deceased persons until burial lots have been prepar- 
ed for their reception. 

A spacious avenue has been formed, from the southern gate 
to Walk Hill street, through the land which was ceded by Dr. 
John G. Warren for that purpose ; and a portion of the posts 
have been set for a division fence, which will be completed 
early in the spring. This new entrance to the Cemetery was 
very much required for the accommodation of those persons 
who reside in the southern portion of the city, and the wagon- 
ers, who transport from Quincy large blocks of granite for mon- 
uments, the foundations of iron fences, and other purposes. 
This avenue is more than five hundred feet in length, and is 
thickly bordered with trees, in nearly its whole extent, as it was 
cut through a natural forest. 

The nursery, which was commenced in the autumn of 1848, 
has claimed special attention, and several thousand seedling 
forest and ornamental trees have been reared, which will be 
transplanted in April : and the seeds of many other varieties 
were sown in November. 

Eight thousand young trees, including fourteen kinds, which 
were imported from England last spring, arrived in a healthy 
condition, except some of the coniferous varieties, and have 
flourished remarkably well ; and many of them have been 
removed to the borders of the avenues and paths. They 
cost, delivered at the nursery, less than three cents a-piece, and 
will be a valuable addition to our numerous superb native 
species of forest trees, all of which that can be cultivated in 

10 



74 

this region, it is confidently believed will be seen growing at For- 
est Hills, within a few years, as well as all the elegant flowering 
shrubs to be found in the Northern States ; and among them is 
the Rhododendron and the Kalmia, which are not surpassed in 
magnificence by any of those which have been introduced from 
other countries, and being evergreens, they are peculiarly appro- 
priate for cemeteries. 

During the eighteen months which have intervened since the 
sale of lots commenced, three hundred and twenty-six have 
been subscribed for, and one hundred and twenty-six of that num- 
ber since the last report. Two hundred and seven have been 
trenched and sodded. Thirty-five have been enclosed with 
iron fences, and thirty-one monuments have been erected. Six 
tombs have been constructed, and there have been two hundred 
and fifty-two interments. 

The Receipts and Expenditures have been as follows :

The results which have so far been attained are much more 
favorable than was anticipated within so short a period, and 
fuUj illustrate the propriety of having thus early laid the founda- 
tion of an establishment which will annually increase in grandeur 
and importance ; for there must finally repose a large portion of 
the present, and of all the future generations of Roxbury, until 
" the dust shall return to the earth as it was, and the spirit 
shall return unto God who gave it." The living of each succes- 
sive year will be anxious, from the dictates of affection, respect 
and piety, to establish and perpetuate the sepulchres of revered 
relatives and honored friends in such a retired, umbrageous, 
magnificent and sacred garden, which will continually augment 
the number and variety of funereal monuments, as well as insure 
the erection of such other structures as may be deemed expe- 
dient, and thus ultimately render the grounds as eminently 
distinguished for the admirable manner in which the rural and 
artistical embellishments shall have been harmoniously com- 
bined, as they are for appropriateness of location, — the best to 
subserve the holy purpose for which they were solemnly conse- 
crated. 

Mr. Brims, the Superintendent, has continued to merit the 
highest commendations for the faithful and able manner in 
which he has discharged his various, difficult, and important 
duties. 

Annexed is a list of the names of the proprietors, with the 
numbers and situations of their lots.

Note. — The lots numbered in the foregoing Catalogue, with the excep- 
tion of a few, are finished ; those not numbered are paid for, but have not 
been selected and prepared. When lots are selected and numbered they 
cannot be changed except with considerable trouble, and before lot 
holders have the numbers of their lots cast in their fences, it is necessary 
to obtain the deed or the number from the City Clerk at his office. A 
proper lot contains three hundred square feet ; where lots vary from that 
size the number of feet is given.

12 times ; burning of chimneys, 5 times ; ringing of factory 
bells, 7 times ; bursting of camphene lamp, 1 time ; alarms 
originating out of the city, 64 times; making a total of 133 
alarms. The loss by fire amounts to $20,298 ; the insurance 
on the same, $14,236. The Department consists of 7 Engi- 
neers and 323 Firemen. The Engine Houses, Engines, and 
apparatus generally, are in good condition. There are in use
