When ever I go to BOA I walk around the cemetery, it's way cool, neat early stones, I also love the early American homes near by. Don't see that stuff here in Sarasota

the patrons are by no means party animals and the conversation is terrible but it's a great place to find inspiration for baby names

Had to visit the Norwichtown cemetery to complete my visits of the Connecticut signers of the Declaration of Independence's graves. It is difficult to get to but once you're in, it's a great cemetery to explore. I parked behind Samuel Huntingtons old yellow mansion and hopped a stone fence to gain access. The cemetery is divided into two sections by... More

Beautiful cemetery full of colonial era graves and very interesting grave stones. When I visited I was the only one walking around on a beautiful day. Since it is fairly small, it's easy to find the graves listed on the flyer I picked up. I believe it was at the entrance to the cemetery. Benedict Arnold's mother is one of... More

Hidden in a nook in Norwich this cemetery is scenic and peaceful. It's age makes it interesting- the headstones weathered but still standing strong. Good place for walks and for taking photos.

I live in Norwich and have to say (aside from living across from where Benedict Arnold was born) that this is an interesting piece of colonial history. Norwich was founded in 1659 and this cemetery contains a lot of history from the 1700s including founders of the nation. And yes, while Benedict himself is not buried here, his mother and... More

This is a classic colonial era New England cemetery with truly ancient headstones. A signer of the declaration of independence is buried here, as are many of the founding families of Norwich, CT, which means some of the founding families of the United States. Today, the town of Norwich seems down on its luck, but this cemetery show just how... More

Super cool historic cemetary. I didnt know so many "important" people on Norwich were buried here. the gravestones are hard to wear because some go back as far as like 1600's so they arent readable anymore but it was still a nice walk and we got to read a lot of gravestones and gasp at the years. Such rich history... More
