Directions. From the intersection of Routes 3 and 102/198 at the north end of Mount Desert Island (just after you cross the bridge from Thompson Island), bear left on Route 3. Follow Route 3 for 4.6–4.7 miles to the intersection on the right with Norway Drive. Turn right onto Norway Drive and follow it for 1.2–1.3 miles to a stop sign at the intersection with Crooked Road. Continue straight on Norway Drive for another 1.2–1.3 miles to the intersection on the left with Old Norway Drive. Across the road (on the right) from this intersection is a one-story house with detached garage. The cemetery, somewhat obscured from sight, is to the right of the garage.

History.

Notes. This cemetery is enclosed by a gated chain-link fence and is well maintained by a neighboring land owner. During or prior to the winter of 2008–2009, a tree fell across two portions of the fence, damaging a portion of the fence along the back of the cemetery as well as the gate at the front.
