Western Cemetery

The land was purchased in 1829 and the cemetery established the same year. A later land purchase in 1841 expanded the cemetery to 12 acres, its present day size. This was Portland's primary cemetery through 1852.
It is unknown how many actual burials have taken place in the cemetery due to "general disorganization" and records lacking.
