Honestly, I didn't even know Robert Frost was there until we saw a sign for it. It was nice there, and the signs have a lot of interesting information on them, especially for the important people of the Revolutionary War. Definitely somewhere I'd want to...More

We stopped to see Robert Frost's grave, but enjoyed looking at all of the historical headstones. Some were very ornate and some had stories about the person buried.

This is an easy to find place and a nice respite from other rushed sites. We love considering the lives that preceded these graves.

It was interesting to hear that the church was built over the original cemetery. Loved ones had the option to exhume and re-bury their family members or leave them. There are very historic headstones in this cemetery. I'm glad we made the stop.

Had to go see where Robert Frost was buried. There were a couple of poems written by him at the site and several names of family members. Very interesting piece of our history

Primary reason for visiting this cemetery was to visit the grave of Robert Frost. Signs clearly marked the way to his burial site. The cemetery is old and very well kept; a bit hilly. The architecture of the tomb stones varies by the styles of...More

Very well maintained Cemetery, with headstones that date back to the MID-1700's !!! We had never experienced seeing several Revolutionary Soldier graves. Was very intriguing! The church is also very well maintained. It was a walk back in time. A must see when you visit...More
