200+ year old tombstone found at construction site

WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A tombstone was found in a construction site in West Springfield, but no body has been discovered along with it. The tombstone was found by a man looking for treasure with his metal detector near the former Knights of Columbus building on Park Avenue. There, he discovered a tombstone belonging to a 92 year-old man who died back in 1807.

The owner of the property, Michael Ostrowski of Aarrha Credit Union, told 22News that he was surprised to hear a tombstone was found on his land.

“There are no remains or anything like that, so it’s more of a novelty at this point that there was a tombstone. It could have been a part of the foundation, but we’re going to extract it and try to find the owner of it and go from there,” Ostrowski said.

West Springfield Police Capt. Robert Duffy told 22News that police are not sure where the tombstone came from, but there are graveyards in the area. Because the stone is broken, it is not exactly clear whose marker it was, but they are trying to figure that out.
