FITCH VETERAN'S CEMETERY, DARIEN
Fitch Veteran's Cemetery is located on the edge of Spring Grove Cemetery, at the intersection of Hecker Avenue and Post Road. It's entrance is marked by a stone archway leading to a circular drive. In the middle of the drive is a tall flagpole with statues of soldiers and sailors about it. The sculpture was done by Karl F. Lang and stands more than ten feet high. (See CHS link below.) The stones marking 2,184 graves are white military stones, all arranged in perfect rows, some more weathered by time than others.
