Fodor's Review

Among those buried in this graveyard, which dates back to the 17th century, are several governors, a Declaration of Independence signer, famous lighthouse keeper Ida Lewis, and Desire Tripp, whose unusual February 1786 gravestone commemorates the amputation of her arm. Many tombstones were made in the stone carving shop of John Stevens, which opened in 1705 and is still in operation.
