Burial place of many of our early settlers, dating back to 1831 including Mr. William How, who died February 21, 1854 at the age of eighty years. Originally called “God’s Acre”, this cemetery has not been used since 1900. 

This cemetery was neglected until 1954, then restored with all of the original headstones uncovered from the grass and embedded together at the front of the cemetery in a single, solid block of concrete. The cemetery was once again restored in 2004. 

There was another small cemetery on the lot where the Old Methodist Church stood on Church St.   The church building has long since been converted to a double house.
