Cedar Grove Cemetery
Fort Lane, Portsmouth •
Cedar Grove Cemetery was established in 1832 and is the city’s first secular cemetery. About 4,000 souls are buried here on about 5 1/3rd acres. The cemetery is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places.
In 2006, a handful of local volunteers formed the Portsmouth Cedar Grove Cemetery Foundation to restore headstones, make improvements, beautify, and educate the public about this important historic Portsmouth site.
Cemetery open from dawn to dusk.
