This graveyard was loaded with history. There is a phone app you can download to do a voice guided tour. Nice that they have preserved the local history and promoted it.

You can park on the street and walk in. There are maps as you enter the gate. There are really interesting headstones and the trees are awesome!

I've self toured this many times. One of these days I'll take the guided tour. Otway Burns most notable and unknown Girl in a rum barrel are local favorites.

We took our 8th graders to the graveyard and historic tour. The kids loved it and they asked so many interesting questions along the way. Great place to take students!

An unusual graveyard as its best viewed when using the written guide which details the most important graves to visit along with a short story about their occupants.Certainly worth a visit.Graves date from the early 1700s.

No charge to enter the burying ground, but they ask a $1 for the brochure with brief commentary on a number of the graves. Not sure what the current fee is for a tour guide, but sometimes you get a free short tour with a... More
