Pass through the stone gates at the end of Old Cemetery Lane, and enter the oldest section of Norwichtown’s Old Burying Ground. Here you will find the final resting places of the men and women who built and first lived in Norwichtown’s nearby Colonial homes in the 1600s and 1700s. Legends, mysteries, and even hauntings abound in this tranquil, yet bewitching, place.

The Faith Trumbull (Norwich, Conn.) chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution each year honors the 20 French soldiers who served under General Rochambeau, who became ill and died at Norwich in 1778, while fighting on behalf of America in the Revolutionary War. They were interred in the Old Burying Ground.
