Wow what a place to visit to find dead relatives or just stroll through history. This historic cemetery is a virtual who's who on New England's leaders from revolutionary and civil war vets to governors and senators. We even found some of my clan and best of all there's no worry that they'll ask for a loan or place to... More

If you want to get a good feel about a town, visit their old cemeteries! The Norwichtown Historic Cemetery aka the Colonial Cemetery has some very interesting old headstones along with the graves of Benedict Arnold's mother and Samuel Huntington who was the President of the Second Continental Congress. When you visit, be sure to visit both the front area... More

The cemetary is small but very old. Gravestone rubbings can be done here. There is a section that French soldiers are buried in that were killed in the revolutionary war.

If you like to look at old cemetery stones this is a nice place. Very peaceful. Not a ghost or a haunt by touch, feel or sight. Even after dark. Benedict Arnold is buried in London and only his mother is buried here. Samuel Huntington is buried nearby. I've been on the haunted walk in October and was disappointed that... More

I took a haunted tour of the Norwichtown Cemetary several years ago with ghost hunter Donna Kent and an historian, several other people also showed up for the tour, it was at night. We were told before entering the cemetary that it was haunted, I was a skeptic. While I was there a ghost did appear before me, I stood... More
