Lower Corner

Happy Fourth of July 2009! The South Buxton Cemetery is located on Rt. 112 in Bar Mills. Here's a photograph of the old 'hearse building' now the tool shed. Kate Douglas Wiggin(1856-1923), author of Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm(1903) is buried here. For a time, she lived at Quillcote, her summer home in Hollis, which is now the town library. She founded the Dorcas Society of Hollis & Buxton, Maine in 1897. The Tory Hill Meeting House nearby inspired her book The Old Peabody Pew (1907). The play is performed there each Christmas season.
Enjoy the dogs, burgers and fireworks, if you got 'em!


  1. Happy 4th of July! I wish we had cemetaries like this one in France. So calm, green, and pretty.

  2. Lovely what that little bit of bunting adds to the feel of this shot.

  3. Happy Fourth of July. I like the bunting on the fence too.
