Old Cove Burying Ground
East Haddam, Middlesex County, Connecticut

Moodus Road, Rt 149, East Haddam CT

Lat: 41° 28' 47"N, Lon: 72° 28' 25"W

For many years after the settlement of the town, the people carried their dead across the Connectciut River to Haddam for burial. Around the year 1700, a burial procession was not able to cross the river because of bad weather. So they buried their dead in the forest, a little ways back from the cove.
