Old Burying Ground in Branford

We will be in Branford in one week and I am hoping to look up some family members who have been buried for 200 years. Is this cemetery difficult to find and are there motels or B&Bs nearby. We will only be there overnight and part of a day as we are traveling on to Maine and Vermont. Thanks for any info.

I think you are looking for what is know as the Old Branford Center Cemetery and it is in the town center. It is easy to find and is mapped on the site below, which may also list your ancestors:


There are some hotel/motels nearby due to the proximity to I-95 and US 1, but I am not sure about Inns or B&Bs. If you stay in the area, pay a visit to Le Petit Cafe for dinner:


A nice drive before returning to the monotony of the highway is to follow Montowese/146 out to the shore and into Guilford center.

Lots of options right in Branford - most chain motels (Holiday Inn, etc..) - You could also look at the Stony Creek B&B if you want something more unique
