(Vine Street Cemetery)
Sunday, October 14 at noon
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.
Co-sponsored with First Parish Federated Church, the cemetery tour will last approximately an hour. It is open to the public and is free of charge. Comfortable shoes are recommended.
