Burial Ground Research

The Wilson Museum is in the midst of a long-range project of surveying the local burial grounds. This is an ongoing process, as data is gathered it will become available here.

Avery Cemetery - off-neck
Bowden-Devereux Cemetery - off-neck
Castine Town Cemetery on the Castine Peninsula
Wescott Cemetery - off-neck
Wilson Cemetery - off-neck

New volunteers are welcomed to join in this endeavor and will surely speed the process. Help is needed in gathering data on-site, and entering data into the database.
