Drewsville Cemetery. Most of the grave markers are from the early to mid nineteenth century.
Thomas Collins Drew (1762-1843), an American Revolutionary War Veteran, and later colonel of the Twentieth Regiment of the New Hampshire militia, bought the land that would become the village of Drewsville in 1810. The power of the Cold River and Blanchard Brook allowed the hamlet to become a center of cotton and wool manufacturing through the mid 1800’s.
Colonel Drew is buried in the cemetery. His grave marker is the second one to the left of the large honey locust tree on the right.
