Thomas Chittenden Cemetery in Williston, Vermont

Two people in the YouTube comments “highly recommended” I visit today’s location: the Thomas Chittenden Cemetery. It’s also known as both the Chittenden Cemetery and the Old Williston Cemetery and is located in Williston, Vermont. It is likely obvious it is named for Thomas Chittenden, first governor of Vermont and first settler of Williston. (And YES, I DO have a video on him! :))

As I walked this place, I was completely amazed by how all the headstones were standing and CLEAN! Kudos to whoever repaired and cleaned these gravestones! That’s no small feat. There were a few down the hill that were leaning, but none had fallen. I’m very impressed. You know how many cemeteries I’ve visited and have seen the devastation with me. The Chittenden Cemetery was a breath of fresh air!

Pro tip: If you’re going to use Google Maps, GM will only recognize “Chittenden Cemetery” to get you there.

This is the first half of my visit there.

Look at those beautifully white stones! Photo snapped in December 2021.
