Place Description

Prominently located on a sloping grassed hill on Route 2 in Scotchfort, this cemetery overlooks the Hillsborough River and features a large granite Celtic Cross. Although commemorating the arrival of Scottish settlers in the area, it is on the site of an earlier French and Acadian burial ground. A sign indicates the name of the cemetery and a white post and cable fence defines the perimeter of the site on the north, west, and east sides.
