Looking for roots? Want to explore a 300-year-old town? Discover the stories within South Berwick's historic cemeteries, using the Old Berwick Historical Society cemetery database!
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. READ MORE.
