ZIONíS HILL CEMETERY
Chesterville, Maine


Take Rt. 156 from Wilton to North Chesterville Village, then take a right and start up the hill. You will see the cemetery on your left up over a steep bank. There is no pathway to it. It is in very bad condition. It looks as though nothing has been done to it in years. There were branches down, stones broken, some missing and holes in the ground.
