655 Ridgebury Road, Cemetery always open. Pedestrians only.

Meet Revolutionary War “ghosts” who will tell you their stories right from their own gravestones in Ridgebury Cemetery.

On Saturday and Sunday afternoons from 1pm to 4pm, "ghosts" will inhabit the
cemetery telling stories of their lives in Ridgebury and their service in the Revolutionary War. Added together, these stories tell a personalized history of the American revolution.


There are eighteen Revolutionary War veterans buried here. Their graves are marked by American Flags of the period. Maps of the cemetery are available at Ridgebury Congregational Church.

Ridgebury Cemetery, officially established in 1743, contains over 700 graves with room for 100 additional. The Cemetery was officially incorporated in 1961 as a non-profit, non-sectarian cemetery association with Robert Keeler Reynolds currently serving as President. Many members of Ridgefield' s founding families rest here in the graveyard cared for by the Keeler-Reynolds families since the death of Ruth Smith Keeler in 1734.
