Frozen in Stone, Stonington Ct.

 The seaside town of Stonington Borough, just a little north of Mystic, CT. is a little town lost in time. At the corner of routes 1 and 1A there is perhaps one of the most glorious Victorian cemeteries in the state of Connecticut. Featuring stones of marble and the famous nearby Westerly blue granite, you will find more examples of monument types and high Victorian carvings than almost anywhere else in the state.  This is not a large cemetery but it is packed with amazing examples of the  heyday of Victorian monument carving, the best examples from 1860s-1890s. The photographs in the slide presentation below are some of the figural statues of merit. For more views of this spectacular memorial garden cemetery, please visit the Stonington Cemetery page at the right side of the screen.
