A one-hour walk will explore this 200-year-old cemetery tucked away in a quiet corner of South Berwick Village. Hear stories of a captain named Elijah Ricker who died at sea in 1826, a young soldier named Alfred W. Hart struck down by disease in the Civil War, and many others. Learn how in 1890 South Berwick citizens raised funds to place the Town Clock in the church steeple, one of only five Stevens town clocks still remaining in Maine in their original locations.
