This website focuses mainly on local New England, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Maine and Vermont history, genealogy of early ancestors who settled the area, and early New England artistans. Your contributions help keep this site growing. Please consider a donation if you've found anything interesting here.

The heart of the history of any New England town can be found in its cemeteries. This website is a collection of photographs and historical information of colonial cemeteries and gravestones of New England in southern Maine, southern New Hampshire and northeast Massachusetts. There are so many significant aspects of tombstones, from the symbolism and artwork of the carvings themselves, to the marks the individuals themselves made on history. They are a valuable learning tool that must be preserved. These headstones represent our past. They are a tangible glimpse of history. By preserving these cemeteries we gain something more to learn history by besides reading it out of a book. In genealogy research, they are often overlooked for the valuable resource they are.

Within these pages are doctors, merchants, Revolutionary Patriots and Loyalists, British soldiers, judges, lawyers, sea captains, pirates and privateers, governors, slaves, military officers and veterans, Civil War generals, clergy...these people created the history of every town, and in most cases all that is left is their headstone and the impression they made on history during their time.

Let no vandalism of avarice or neglect, no ravages of time, testify to the present or to the coming generations that we have forgotten....If other eyes grow dull and other hands slack, and other hearts cold in the solemn trust, ours shall keep it well as long as the light and warmth of life remain in us.
