The Farber Gravestone Collection documents more than 9,000 New England gravestones, carved in the 16th through 19th centuries, with most made prior to 1800. The data accompanying the photographs include the name and death date of the deceased, the location of the stone, and information concerning the stone material, the iconography, the inscription, and (when known) the carver. The majority of the gravestones are from Massachusetts, with others from Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont.
