 Codman Burying Ground (1848), Angel Wings, Norfolk Street

Related to the Second Church (1806) where John Codman was the first pastor. The design of the paths through the cemetery is in the shape of angel wings.

Rev. John Codman, D.D., who died on the twenty-third of December, 1847, at the age of sixty-five years, bequeathed to the Second Parish a lot of land for burial purposes on Norfolk Street. This was consecrated as the “Dorchester Cemetery,” on the twenty-seventh of October, 1848, the day that the remains of this distinguished theologian were removed from their original place of deposit to the family tomb within the enclosure. The first burial in the cemetery was made eight days previous.
