Danbury Quarter Cemetery, Winchester, CT

Located: From Winchester center, take 263 west. Stay right on West Rd. Make a right on Grantville Rd. Make a right on the next road, Preston Rd. It becomes little more than a path. Take a good stout four-wheel-drive vehicle for this. The next path on the left is where you need to go -- it's an off-road area without a name. The cemetery is on the right and should be visible from the path.

Google Maps Visuals:  satellite view

Type of site: Town cemetery, no longer in use, abandoned

Condition: Tragic. Although abandoned, it looks often vandalised

History and Notable Features: While there are a couple attractive stones, there is nothing of great note here. If you visit, pay attention to the weather -- the paths to the cemetery occasionally flood and become impassable.
