Chester Cemetery, Groton, New London, Connecticut

 Chester Cemetery, Groton, New London, Connecticut

This cemetery is located in the woods on the property of the Haley Farm State Park in Noank (Groton), CT.  From I-95 take Exit 88 South, turn left at the junction of Highway 1 going East, veer right at the junction of highway 215 (Groton-Long Point Road).  Take a right onto Brook Street and turn onto Haley Farm Lane (the only street intersection Brook St.), which dead ends after a very short distance at the State Park.  Upon entering the Park take the dirt road to the right and follow it about 1/4 mile.  You will see an open field on the left.  Take any small foot path leading you into the woods.  The cemetery is about 1/4 mile back in the woods and rests just below a small hill.

To realms of light, in love & praise the Lord.
