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 with Norway Drive. Turn left onto Norway Drive and follow it to the end (about 0.1 miles).

Notes. A large stone along the approach to the cemetery bears a plaque with the inscription “In memory of our pioneers/This tablet marks the/site of/the first town house/erected in Eden/built in 1842/razed in 1931/This memorial erected by/the town of Bar Harbor/1932”. No fence encloses the cemetery, although there are remnants of a former wood fence. Many stones are laying on the ground. The grass is mowed and trimmed.
