Vine Lake Cemetery is a historic cemetery on Main Street in Medfield, Massachusetts. First established in 1651, this 32-acre (13 ha) cemetery has grown and evolved over the centuries, and remains the town's only public cemetery. Its sections include the original colonial burying ground, a section in the rural cemetery style fashionable in the 19th century, and modern sections laid out in the 20th century. The oldest dated marker is from 1661.[2]

The cemetery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.[1]
