Salisbury Center Cemetery
Salisbury, Litchfield County, Connecticut

27 Main Street (Rte 44), Salisbury, Connecticut 06068

Lat: 41° 58' 55"N, Lon: 73° 25' 25"W

This cemetery is located on the north side of Route 44 (Main Street) in the center of town directly behind the Town Hall, and just two blocks west of where Rte 41 intersects from the north.

This is a very old inactive cemetery on about half an acre, fenced, mown and free of debris. Entrance sign notes burials date from 1750-1873. Many stones are broken, sunken, eroded and covered with plant growth. Some have small metal plates attached to the back giving the decedents name and birth/death year. Numerous small stone markers have no inscription.

Also known as Town Hill Cemetery, Old Burying Ground and Center Cemetery.

A free online library of cemetery records from thousands of cemeteries across the world, for historical and genealogy research.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
