Colebrook River Burying Ground, Colebrook

Location: Going north on Rt 8/ Colebrook River Rd. towards MA, make a right on Eno Hill Rd., cemetery will be on the left at the three-way intersection

Google Maps Visuals: satellite view

Type of Site: Public cemetery, still in use

Condition: The newer section seems very well-cared for and often visited. The older section of the cemetery on the northeast corner of the site is also in decent condition. There are a couple felled stones, but not many.

History and Notable Features: Many of the older stones of this site were in the original Colebrook River Burying Ground -- a property which, due to the building of the dams, was flooded. Thus, all the bodies of the original cemetery had to be exhumed and re-interred in this location.
