The beautiful Lakeside Chapel within the cemetery needs your help.
The chapel was designed by architect Edward Bridge and built in 1932, "to be a beautiful and dignified setting for funeral services." It is a classic New England non-denominational chapel, built to resemble an English country church, with sharply sloped slate roof and granite stone facing.
For many years the chapel has come into disrepair due to water infiltration and deteriorating window casings, floors, roof, stained glass widows, masonry, and stucco.
In addition, the gracefully arched double front doors are in serious condition and in desperate need of repair. It is our sincere hope to restore this quintessential and historic building to its former glory for possible future use for funeral services and gatherings.
The cemetery is a private, non-profit entity, which means it receives no funds from the town for upkeep. The cemetery operates solely on income from sale of lots. The cost of these repairs is far more than the proceeds from sales of lots in the cemetery.
If you enjoy walking through the cemetery and appreciate the beauty of the chapel, please
