Newfield Cemetery, Torrington

Located: On Mountain Rd., Torrington, just north of the Marshall Lake Rd. cross street, on left going north

Google Maps Visuals: satellite view

Type of Site: Public cemetery

Condition: Well looked after, grass cut, broken stones raised and restored with a silicone filler, not an apparent location for vandalization, has "newer" stones (post 1950), but does not seem to have any recent burials

History and Notable Features: While the stones do not offer anything out of the ordinary, the wrought iron gate surrounding the cemetery is beautiful. Sadly, these gates are becoming harder to find due to a high incidence of them being stolen.
