WPA Cemetery Locator Project


   One of the Depression era projects in Hampshire County done by the W.P.A. was a list of the graves of all veterans before WWII. This list gives us detailed locations of all the 120 cemeteries the WPA visited. However, the route numbers and names are based on the 1930 version of our county highway map - not on our current map! As part of its "Military Marker Project" we are making the entire survey project available on our web site. The WPA's listing of veterans can be found by clicking here. It will take you to the project page were you can see over 400 cards of Hampshire County Veteran burials.
Note:
We are now adding the maps the WPA made of the cemetery locations and, where applicable, they have included within the cemetery the approximate location of the veteran's grave. This is an ongoing project - please check back
