Newington Cemetery was opened in 1846, and covers 14 acres. It is not only the final resting place of many local families, it provides a refuge for wildlife and a peaceful haven. Volunteers will be available to point out some of the many interesting graves, architectural features, and beautiful trees, or you can wander around alone and discover its hidden treasures.
