Journey back to the 1860s on this tour of Hartford Village Cemetery.


From the Intersection of Routes 5 and 14 in White River Junction, travel northwest (towards West Hartford) on Route 14. Soon you will see I-91 crossing high over Route 14 ahead of you. Look for the Hartford Cemetery on your right, and park in the lot just before the Cemetery, along the chain link fence.

Update to this Quest

October 2013. One of the trees from paragraph 2 is gone. So pass by one hydrangea and on through 2 Hazens. September 3, 2010. Just before missing letter number 7, we spelled the name of the Civil War soldiers name wrong — It should be Orrin! Sorry about that!
