Cemetery Stroll Mt. Adnah

Mt. Adnah Cemetery in Annisquam is a 5 acre, privately owned cemetery in Annisquam according to Find-a-Grave . Also known as Jakes Hill, the first burial was in 1848. The name Mt. Adnah was chosen because the Hebrew translation is “rest of testimony eternal” (also information found on the Find-a-Grave site). We took a walk through there recently hoping to fulfill some Find-a-Grave requests for photos. The cemetery is quite charming though a bit confusing in layout. There are numerous hills and paths to follow…several markers are reflected right on the boulders as they lay in the ground, which I consider appropriately respectful. The layout lends to the restful atmosphere.  It’s very well maintained and contains a number of interesting gravesites, just don’t get lost among them!
