The cemetery is not too large and basically level. You can pick up brochure of trees and of 'famous' interments. Good spots for shade.

Landscaping is well taken care of. The scenery is beautiful with the pond and geese walking around. Peaceful where you can't hear any traffic when you enter the cemetery.

Very worth the drive through. Many of Connecticut's historic residents are buried here. Beautiful monuments in a park like setting. Grave location map is available at the entrance for the notables. Special cemetery walks throughout the year.

Cemeteries that have cultural events, oh my! I enjoy just driving around looking at the statuary. A haven for runners, people eating their lunch, taking a walk, and yes, paying homage to loved ones.

The Halloween-season Lantern Tour exceeded my expectations! Book early-we almost missed out! There are a dozen costumed characters scattered throughout the lantern-lit stroll -including some really, really interesting folks like Ernest Hemingway! Planning on doing this as a yearly event!

This is a good cemetery to tour and walk around. It is very well-kept and beautiful. There is a lot of history here and the gateway is very impressive. We saw some very nice markers and sculptures.

We "scattered" my father's ashes in Jacob's Way, and it is beyond beautiful. Neal was very accommodating, and the lake/pond full of water lilies and geese and ducks was perfect. It was so lovely and peaceful, I hope I can be buried in a place...More
