The graves go back to the 1760's. This is beautiful, historic, and peaceful. There is a fantastic beaver sculpture and a great photo op. Nice to stroll through. This is directly across from the park area where you can have a picnic lunch.

If your into history and cemetery walking, this is a must add to your list. Not too small, not too big. Good mixture of large old tombs mixed with new.

I have to visit cemeteries because my wife likes to visit every cemetery to read headstones. There is history here for those like my wife who look for dead relatives.
