In use as early as 1660, Farmington’s Old Cemetery on Main Street was the town’s boneyard and remained so until the end of the 19th century. Come learn about the cemetery’s history and development along with stories some of its “residents” .

One of the most beautiful burying grounds in Connecticut, Memento Mori has much to tell us about the history and customs of Farmington’s people of the past. Learn how it reflects changing ideas about religion and the world. Hear about the artwork represented on the headstones, and the restoration efforts underway to preserve this heritage treasure.
