Simpson Cemetery
Brunswick, Maine

Also known as Hacker Cemetery

Located high on a hill on River Road, this cemetery was sited to overlook the farm that used to be below it. Near the Pejepscot Fish Park, the cemetery is surrounded by a post-and-rail fence. The burial ground is immaculately mowed and maintained by a member of the Simpson Cemetery Association. The earliest stone is dated 1833. The cemetery is still in use.
