norcrosshill cemetery

Chesterville, Maine

From Chesterville Village take the Ridge Road. About 2.5 miles out, there's Norcross Pond and the Public Boat Landing on the right and the Norcross Hill Road on the left. Turn left, proceed about half-way up the hill to find this cemetery on the left.. A lot of stones that are unreadable; also some stones are tipped over and some broken. Usually mowed.
