This cemetery is accessed from the old dump road, so-called, which is on the South end of Waterbury Village. The road has a gate which may be closed & locked at certain times. The cemetery is found by going through an underpass, under I-89, and proceeding about 150 yds up a trail northeast of I-89. The cemetery is on a knoll on the southerly side of the trail and is marked only by a Granite Memorial Stone with a bronze plaque. It was visited on Sept 22, 2000 by Robert H. Morse. The cemetery is bounded by 4 low granite corner stones. The Memorial stone is at one end of the burial plot and has the following words:

 

 “This beautiful knoll overlooking the grounds of the Vermont State Hospital is matched in splendor only by the twenty or so residents of the Hospital who were buried here between 1891 and 1912. May their spirits soar, you are remembered.” 

Dedicated 1991
