I knew there was an old cemetery around the corner from me on Baker Hill Road, but I hadn't visited it until yesterday. It's apparently the oldest cemetery in Dryden, having opened in 1802. It's been pretty well documented by local genealogists, but it's a strange place well-worth a visit. These pictures don't really convey the feel of the place, with its undulating ground, toppled headstones, and the strangely contrasting view out over the industrial and office zone at the intersection of Routes 13 and 366.
Robertson Cemetery, Baker Hill Road (map)
A lot of the headstones shown signs of having been shot, probably by hunters chasing the deer who leave clear evidence of their presence in the cemetery.Posted by simon at December 30, 2003 12:13 PM in Route 13/366 , history , photos
