Old Fields Cemetery South Berwick Annual Clean Up

Over the past 5 years, Vicky and Bruce Whitney of South Berwick have taken it upon themselves to organize the clean up of the Old Fields Cemetery on Vine Street in South Berwick, Maine.  This has been no small task.  In the last three years, they have had 50 tall pines removed, opening up this once overgrown graveyard to the light.  Graves date back to Mehitable Goodwin, taken by Indians in 1689/90 to Canada, and eventually returned to her home town. For more information about this cemetery, visit the Old Berwick Historical Society page:
