Clifton Burying Ground
Also known as:  Golden Hill Burial Ground, Rhode Island Historical Cemetery Newport #14

  • Golden Hill Street, Newport, Newport County, Rhode Island, USA
  • 240 Memorials added (61% photographed)

Also called Clifton Graveyard after the first owner of the land, Thomas Clifton, who left it in his will in 1675 to the Society of Friends. An index card at Newport Historical Society points out that some stones predate the will. Many Quakers are buried here, but in general the stones are elaborately rather than severely carved. Many notable citizens of early Newport, rest here.
