Located right on Route 6, you can visit this historic cemetery where a couple of the original Mayflower passengers are buried. Their grave markers have been updated by a historical society but the other headstones are either gone or very hard to read. Do your...More

I love taking my dog here to walk. It is a relaxing little graveyard and there are information packets at the entrance with very interesting information. There are cool headstones here.

It was humbling to walk through this cemetery where the earliest settlers on the Cape are buried--including 3 who came on the Mayflower. And it probably goes unnoticed for most traveling Rt. 6.

Step back in time with this burying ground. 3 graves are for people who came aboard the Mayflower. Self-guided but documentation is available.

It required a lot of research to know what I was seeing and who these people were, but without their lives, our country would be very, very different.

A simple graveyard for some of the earliest settlers of this country. Stones are eroded by weather but most are still readable.
