Abstract

Eastern Cemetery, Portland's oldest resting place for the deceased, was begun sometime in the mid-1600s on land owned by George Cleeve. Portions of the cemetery were aside throughout the 18th and 19th centuries for specific groups of individuals, such as African Americans and Quakers. The cemetery has survived more than 300 years of change, but is currently suffering from neglect, vandalism and the elements. Details.
