Sandgate Center Cemetery – the first cemetery established in the town in the late 1700’s – the earliest recorded gravesite is that of Capt. Nathaniel Jones who died on February 6, 1794. - added by Wanderer
Just a couple of views of the cemetery from our lunch spot. The pic on the left is a view across the valley at Minister Hill, 2100’. The pic on the right includes some of the gravestones on the hillside above where we had lunch. Some of us noticed that many of the gravestones that were broken and lying on the ground in previous visits have been repaired and standing tall once again! - added by Wanderer
View from Norman Rockwell’s house of the Chapel on the Green and the West Arlington Covered Bridge. His home had been converted into an Inn but is now for sale. - added by Wanderer
Nearing the end of our journey – back in New York – lots of color. - added by Wanderer
