The 'old section' of the cemetery.

History...

Eastside is a cemetery with a rich history. The first burial on record dates to the mid-1700s. Twenty-three soldiers of the Colonial Wars and the Revolutionary War are buried in East Side, as well as soldiers from the Civil War, World War I and II, Korean and Vietnam Wars. The Reverend Benjamin Woodbridge, the first pastor of Amity Parish for whom the town is named, is buried in Eastside along with his wife. Also resting here are many of the town's oldest families. In walking among the old headstones one will see the names for which many of the town's streets were named.

Currently...

Price per grave (10' long, 3'3" wide) is $800. Two cremations can be put in one grave. Monuments are allowed, as are foot stones. We do not allow planting of shrubs; all other plantings are allowed.
