Oviatt Cemetery, Goshen, Litchfield County, CT

Located: From Goshen Center/ the Goshen rotary, go north. Turn right on Hageman-Shean Rd. The road splits -- Ivy Mountain Exd straight (dirt road) and Hageman-Shean Rd./Sterling Rd. to the left. Stay on Hageman-Shean Rd./Sterling Rd. The cemetery is on the left shortly after the turn.

Google Maps Visuals: satellite view

Type of site: Old family cemetery, no longer in use

Condition: Maintained nicely, many stones repaired, footstones still present

History and Notable Features: Unless you are looking for it and know the vicinity of it, you may not find it. This is one we had looked for several times but without decent understanding of its precise location and during the summer when the entrance was a bit more overgrown. The road there is less than pleasant too, so drive carefully.
