Fodor's Expert Review Island Cemetery

Block Island Cemetery

At this beautifully tended hilltop graveyard from the 1600s, you can spot the names of long-standing Block Island families (Ball, Mott, Rose) and take in fine views of the marinas and mooring fields in the Great Salt Pond. Locally, it's also known as Old Cemetery. The Block Island Historical Society offers a tour a few times a year, and by appointment August–October; call the society or visit its website for more information.
