Private Cemeteries

There are over one hundred private cemeteries on private lands in the Town of Phippsburg.  Although the cemetery trustees are not responsible for their maintenance, all residents are encouraged to respect these sacred resting places. We appreciate the effort made by some folks and organizations to maintain these old, private cemeteries.  A map of private cemeteries is available for review at the Town Office.
