History Stroll: Old Fields Burying Ground

Sunday, October 25 & November 1, Noon

OBHS archivist Kaja Roan will twice present our annual tour of Old Fields Burying Ground, one of the oldest cemeteries in Maine. Old Fields Burying Ground is located near the corner of Vine and Brattle Streets. South Berwick’s oldest community cemetery, dating to the 1600s, it is part of the “Old Fields” area that was once the center of town.  The First Church of Berwick meeting house stood nearby, and many people earned their livelihood at sawmills on the Great Works River and shipyards on the Salmon Falls River. 

Limited to 10 people per tour, masks & reservations required. Please go to our website for the sign-up link, or call 207-384-0000. Tour is open to the public and is free of charge, $5 suggested donation for non-members. Comfortable shoes and long pants are recommended. LINK TO SIGNUP
