sanbornhill cemetery

Chesterville, Maine

From Chesterville Village, take the Ridge Road to the public boat landing on Norcross Pond. Take a left onto the Norcross Hill Road, go about 2 miles, take the next left, go about 2 miles, take the next left onto the Sanborn Hill Road. Cemetery is a short distance up the hill on your right. Poor condition. Some field stones. Some broken stones and some stones sinking into the ground.
