Old Cemetery, Plymouth, Litchfield County

Location: From Rt 8 (CT), take Exit 39 and go east on Rt 6 toward Plymouth/Terryville/Bristol, CT. At the Plymouth green, make a left on Park St. This will turn into a church parking lot. The cemetery is on the left side.

Google Maps Visuals:  road side view   satellite view

Type of Site: Belongs to the Plymouth Congregational Church, no longer in use

Condition: Well kept but there are many stones that have become buried, also a bunch of broken stones in the stone walls.

History and Notable Features: Many 1700s stones. There's a stone belonging to the Rev. Oliver Todd with unusual Masonic symbolism.



  1. There will be a free guided tour of Plymouth Center, including this cemetery, on Saturday, July 14 from 11am-12:30pm.
    We have improved the entrance to the cemetery with brick pavers, removed the ugly chain link fence that blocked the view, and started cleaning the gravestones.
    For more information about the tour, go to www.plymouthlandtrust.org
    Rain date is July 15, same time.

    1. I will post this elsewhere on the site and on our Facebook page. I wish I could go but I'll be visiting cemeteries over in Oregon. Hopefully someone else from the initiative will be able to attend!
