East Cemetery, Morris, CT

Location: From Litchfield going south to Morris on Rt 63/ Litchfield Rd., make a right on Rt 119/ East St. The cemetery is on the right. There are two driveways for it. Next to it, farther west, is the Jewish cemetery.

Google Maps Visuals: roadside view   satellite view

Type of Site: Town cemetery, still in use

Condition: Nicely kept with a couple stones needing repair.

History and Notable Features: Several late 1700s stones -- some are very crude, lacking the traditional headstone shape, and thus have a great deal of character.
