I found the National Cemetery to be a place to reflect and give thanks to all who have served and or given their lives for me self and family. The grounds are immaculately kept. The entrance has a visitor stop with a restroom if needed. You may park and walk or drive through. I will be back with family next... More

My wife and I went here on the return from Blackwater Falls and upon seeing all of the gravesites for the veterans that served to protect America, my sense of American pride and freedom continued to grow. I felt honored to be able to see this site and am glad for the contributions that these veterans have given us all.

Upon entering Grafton and Prunytown, it is very apparent that these two little towns admire and honor US veterans. When you enter through the gates of each cemetery, you can't help but be humbled by the visual numbers of the lives who have served this country from the Civil War and on.

This is something you have to see for yourself. It evokes a different feeling for everyone. This place is huge. You won't believe how many soldiers occupy this land.

Come see the Memorial Day Parade...many school children have dressed in white, marched in the parade, then decorated the graves in the National Cemetery. This is an annual event and a big celebration in Grafton. Of course, Grafton has many veterans and patriotic citizens who support the National Cemetery.

Traveled through the cemetery close to sunset and the views were amazing. The white headstones were a sad reminder of what sacrifices our soldiers make daily for us to enjoy such peaceful surroundings.

The Civil War may have started with shots fired at Fort Sumter SC, but the first land battle and first casualty were in West Virginia, just south of Grafton. Union private T. Bailey Brown and another soldier were confronted by confederate scouts and ordered to halt. Instead, Brown drew his pistol and fried at the lead confederate, grazing his ear.... More

My father was a veteran. When the time came I was informed the he could be interned here. This has been the perfect final resting place for my dad and eventfully my mom with him. The Grafton National Cemetery is a beautiful, peaceful, historic cemetery. Beautifully maintained with rolling hills and vistas. On Memorial Day all the graves are marked... More
