Mt. Calvary Annex Cemetery: Part 1

I had heard of this cemetery, but didn’t know where it was. And then one day when I had parked on Germain Street to film some buildings, I saw this cemetery. I googled which one it was and lo & behold I discovered it was the Mt. Calvary Annex Cemetery!

“After forty years in service, more space was needed for future expansion. An exchange was arranged with the Ladies of Nazareth for a large plot of land, consisting of about three acres on the south side of the original cemetery, across Pomeroy Street. The Burlington firm of Mclntosh & Crandall, Civil Engineers, was engaged in 1920 to draw up a plan for dividing the land into grave lots in an organized manner. The result was ninety lots consisting of seven hundred and forty graves. In the summer of 1921, the Mount Calvary Cemetery Annex was fenced in and seeded into lawn.”-Leo A. Fleury, January, 1983

I filmed all of the west side of the Mt. Calvary Annex Cemetery located in Burlington, Vermont. The west side is on the right side in this photo.
