Cemetery Commission

There are eight cemeteries in the Town of West Fairlee, each steeped in the rich history of our town. The largest cemetery is located in West Fairlee Village.  The oldest stone, dated 1790, rests in the Center Cemetery.

The seven other cemeteries that dot the countryside around the village are smaller.  The Bloodbrook, Kidderhood, Krook, Middlebrook, Scruton Hill, West Fairlee Center and Wild Hill cemeteries all add to the history of this area.

The Cemetery Commission is responsible for administering and maintaining these cemeteries.
