OBHS Cemeteries

EXPLORE! South Berwick's five community cemeteries span almost four centuries, from the 1600s to the present day. Rich with history, they are peaceful, interesting places to stroll, as well as being a repository of historical facts and a means to honor hundreds of our veterans. The Town of South Berwick provides only minimal maintenance for cemeteries. The Old Berwick Historical Society is therefore grateful to the volunteers who maintain these irreplaceable community landmarks.

Remarks Wife of Dr Charles Trafton She is gone The spoiler set his seal of silence But there beam'd a smile So fixed and holy from that marble brow Death gased and left it there, he dared not steal the signet ring of Heaven.
