New Sharon, Maine

This cemetery is located on the Cape Cod Hill Road off Rt. 139. It is located behind the school on a path that is marked as a Nature Trail. The children in the school had taken on the project of cleaning up this cemetery. They did a marvelous job. They have even planted a few flowers and some are artificial but everyone has a flower, they also strung a rope around the granite posts that were along the outside of the cemetery.
There is a flat stone with a plaque in the center of the graveyard that says: “Repaired in the Memory of those known and unknown who lie on this hill by the Cape Cod School 1997".
