Old Burying Ground Tour – Westbrook, CT

October 15 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm


Free
Westbrook Old Burying Ground, Old Clinton Road
WESTBROOK, 06498 United States


OCTOBER 15, 11:00 AM. Take a short, guided, graveyard tour of Westbrook’s oldest cemetery – the Old Burying Ground – to be followed by a Cider and Donuts reception. The Old Burying Ground is located at the corner of Boston Post Road (Route One) and Old Clinton Road, directly across Old Clinton Road from the Westbrook Congregational Church. You will hear the stories of some of our town’s earliest families whose gravestones stand there to this day. At the reception afterwards, across the street at the Congregational Church Hall, you can see photos of what lies below the gravestones today, a discovery made possible by the 21st century technology of Ground Penetrating Radar and LiDar. Cider and donuts will be served, compliments of our society. This event is FREE and open to the public. (Well-behaved children are welcome.)
