CEMETERY , TOWN OF FLORIDA, BERKSHIRE COUNTY, MASSACHUSETTS

 

MARTIN TOWER CEMETERY, TOWN OF FLORIDA
Photographed and recorded in its entirety although there may be burials without markers. The plot is located on the west side of the road at the northern most end of Bliss Road, very near the dead end where once was the Martin Tower farm/homestead. Years ago Bliss Road continued all the way to Vermont. Bliss Road is NOT plowed in the winter; during warmer weather it is best described as a narrow dirt road subject to washouts - at risk of being impassible - a 4 x 4 with high clearance is recommended. The cemetery is surrounded on all 4 sides by a stone wall. Stones face west, rows run north/south.
