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

Considering we were on our way to a Dartmouth reunion, we had to visit the grave of Robert Frost when we found out it was so near our B&B.

The stones and grounds are well maintained. And, they have some signs around to tell you of some of the people who are buried here. Particularly, you can easily find the way to Robert Frost's burial site.
