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.
