- In 1963, the Deerfield Woman's Club undertook to individually photograph all 493 stones in the burying ground of Deerfield, Mass. This ambitious project provided the town with a permanent record of the site and began a process of preserving the historic grounds. The cemetery, which was replaced in 1801, is an important part of the history of the town.
